posted by on 2009.08.25, under News

I will be showing my latest video installation and other works at the avalon seafood gallery in North Adams, Ma. The show runs august 27 through september 20 with the reception this thursday august 27 6 pm – 9 pm. If your around that neck of the woods check it out. I would love to get out there but the money is tight these days.

There is also a pretty great article/interview about the show and work written by John E. Mitchell for the North Adams Transcript. Check out the article Here [pdf]

I have attached some pics of the work and hope to post more from the show. Enjoy!


Billy wasn’t sure it took that long, but soon felt uncomfortable.

There you are is a video installation that investigates a specific, contrived space. Within this space, the Installation utilizes sound, animation, and collage. The piece reflects the fantastic things that happen in small, mundane spaces.

Run Time: 10 Min 35 sec.

I created 50 limited edition screen prints for the show. They will be available at the show the prints are 22 x 30″ pictured.

Art House Sketchbook Project

posted by on 2009.06.29, under News

I was part of a sketchbook show that travailed to a bunch of cities and galleries this summer. The guys over at art house do some really great work and bring together a bunch of talented artists. The show titled “The Sketchbook Project” traveled to 7 cities and just finished in Chicago. There was some pretty sweet press for the shows and a cnn interview so i have attached some links and some pics of my sketchbook.

Way to go Art House keep up the great work!

The Gem show was pretty fun, there was a pretty large turnout and it got a lot of press.
Below is a TV spot where one of my paintings was featured.
