On exhibition through the end of June at Powell's City of Books in downtown Portland Oregon.
In late January I was asked to do an art show at a book store. I had done a few there before but it wasn't until this show that I realized Powells printed books.
Why not make a coloring book to go along with a show?
The drawings and sculptures on display are inspired by the drawings in the book I made. The drawings in the book are inspired by space, mostly industrial space, exteriors of industrial space to be precise.
Places where things are manufactured have always been interesting to me. They are space that is created for a function. form follows, but yet it's still pleasing to the eye. I find that humorous, beautiful, and what you see on display is some form of translation.
A group exhibition focused on the working waterfront. I made 6 works on paper for this one day event on August 17th. The artwork will be on display in a shipping container gallery.
They have $5 jet boat rides

Below are two of the works, made with gouache and graphite.
This past weekend I created a mobile, mirror ball kaleidoscope in my van for the first Portland Lost Horizon Night Market.
http://www.celebrationfoundation.net/. I am creating an installation in a gallery space called The Vestibule that is 5' X 40'. Using funding from The Celebration Foundation and a few bucks raised from Festibule, I plan to create an uneasy and awe inspiring environment loaded with stacks of dinner plates

In the Basement of Mississippi Records is a little bit of sunshine at the Portland Museum of Modern Art. I'm part of a great group show on display until March 15.
"Winter doldrums begone! In this, the coldest and darkest time of the year in Portland, it's important to remember that the next glorious summer is just around the corner. If you need a reminder, please join us at the Portland Museum of Modern Art for our first annual group show, which spotlights emerging artists from our community. Each artist has been asked to harness the energy of the sun and create a piece that evokes warmth and light."
