Show at Brooklyn Artists Gym Gallery

Oil on canvas
30 x 36 inches

I am very happy to announce that one of my paintings, titled "Calling" was included in an excellent show at the Brooklyn Artists Gym Gallery. "Where the Heart Is" was well-attended and the work looked fabulous. This painting is an image of my grandfather in his shop with my grandmother looking on from the background. I have started to explore ideas about age, life experience, mortality, and the profound effect those whom we love have on our lives.

A few more

Below are a few more examples of my recent lithography work. I'm exploring family dynamics, the idea of home, and close personal relationships in my paintings and prints.

My newfound printing obsession: monoprints. They are fun, fast, and surprising. You can work in a multitude of ways, but the idea is to work directly on plexiglas, a metal plate, or most any hard non-absorbent surface, and then run it through the press. You usually only get one good print, thus the term 'mono'print. These first few prints I did intuitively, just experimenting to see what would happen.
