Rumjahn Gallery page!

I’m very happy to be featured at the gorgeous new Rumjahn Gallery along with some of my favorite local artists (and many other awesome ones I’m encountering for the first time)! If you haven’t stopped by yet, you need to…they’ve really done an amazing job with the space. I love their setup and their variety. And if you’re an artist looking to show work, they’re really nice folks!

Here’s the link to my profile, you can see all kinds of neat artists on there.

Rumjahn Gallery and Framery is at 310 Main Street, Evansville IN 47708, and they’re open Tuesday-Saturday 10-5.

New Land

The ghost of a dying deer gracefully departs to join its cousins in the sky, in a land free from men and roads and lethal machines.

This creepy little piece is a digital collage consisting of two pen and ink drawings, combined and finished on the computer, to fulfill a “ghost” prompt back in late 2012/early 2013.

The title “New Land” refers to destination of the ghostly herd ascending into the night sky.

Chordata 5 and 6

Two views of a turtle, created by gluing hundreds of bits of paper onto a painted wooden board.

These lovely turtle skeletons (or Chordata 5 and 6 as I uncreatively call them) debuted in my November ’13 “Patchwork Dragon” solo show and have since been sold. They were very fun to make and consisted of hundreds of small individually cut pieces of paper glued onto painted wood. I used a damaged art print for the brilliant colors of the shell.

They will not be the last turtles I make! I hope to have a turtle or two in the works for the upcoming Art in the Wild group show on Saturday April 5.

11/4/2014 EDIT: Took me longer than I wished, but yes I am currently making a black-skeletoned turtle for the Patchwork Central Holiday Art Sale this coming Saturday! He looks pretty neat so far, I hope to have him done tomorrow.

Kitsune

Beautiful woman in a kimono looking at her reflection in the water, that of a fox demon.

Now let’s have some old art! “Kitsune” is a commission from a couple of years back. It’s vector! The client didn’t specify vector but I got a wild hair. If you look closely at her reflection in the water, it’s a fox. She’s really a fox demon in the guise of a lovely woman.

Kitsune is on Society6||Redbubble.

Ergo Sum

Bone and syringe butterflies merge into black polygons which in return become flying lizards. An homage to Escher's Metamorphoses.

“Ergo Sum,” centerpiece of my last show. It’s probably atrocious Latin, but I wanted to take the Thinking out of Being. The original incarnation of this baby is a seven foot wide painting and collage on wood! Here it is a bit bigger:
