two shows in December. Pick a coast!

East Coast, West Coast

I have two shows in Dec. Concentrating on the US but not favoring either coast. Two VERY different shows but fitting well with my work nonetheless.


"The Little Deaths"

Anagnorisis Fine Arts and Shadow's Space gallery are pleased to announce an exhibition featuring works that explore the visceral and intellectual foundations behind the well-known French term, “La Petit Mort” or “The Little Death”. Dramatically referring to orgasmic fainting spells or spiritual release, the term evokes the darker, and perhaps more realistic aspects of lust and love. One could possibly say that, through its association with death, it could also hint at the adverse emotions associated with intimacy.

Exploring various interpretations of The Little Deaths are artworks created by a wide range of outstanding artists, from some who are just beginning to show their work to those whose names are recognized internationally. The collection is eclectic, yet the artists, many of whom have created new works exclusively for the exhibit, were carefully chosen for the sensual elements inherent in their artistic styles.

Shadow's Space Gallery, located in Philadelphia PA, is Fuse Gallery's sister space, newly opened this year. We are all very excited to be working with Nikki Sneakers, their director, and the Fuse Gallery crew.

Exhibiting artists:

Christian Rex van Minnen, Anastasia Alexandrin, Carrie Ann Baade, Roger Ballen, Eduardo Benedetto, Molly Bosley, Dana Bunker, Christopher Conte, Clayton Cubitt, Jonathan Davies, Cam de Leon, Dan Estabrook, Danielle Ezzo, Lori Field, Heather Gargon, Chambliss Giobbi, Celicia Granata, Caitlin Hackett, Scott Holloway, Tina Imel, John Kolbek, Craig LaRotonda, Samantha Levin, Julie Anne Mann, Nia Mora, Dan Ouellette, Alex Passapera, Jeanette Rodrigez, Erin Colleen Williams

Please join us for the opening reception during Philadelphia's First Friday, December 4th from 6-9. Shadow's Space is located above Kung Fu Neck ti. Much fun will be had.

The exhibit will run throughout the month of January.

Please join us to celebrate our opening night at The Chaos Gallery, in Hollywood, CA, Saturday, December 5, at 8PM!

Friday the 13th!

ART THAT CREEPS was just released in Germany at Strychnin Gallery on Friday the 13th. (only seems appropriate) This is the first internationally distributed book that I am proud to be included in.
There are a bunch of really great artists included in this hard cover book. Some of these artists I am proud to say are friends and have shown with them too. It is available at Amazon for anyone in the states or at the book publishers site Korero Books where you can scroll and look at a couple of pages (mine not included)

Here are some descriptions of the book,

"Neo-gothic visual energy and inspiration from the worlds of lowbrow and neo-surrealism. Featuring artists from all corners of the globe working in oil, digital, sculpture, engraving, porcelain, taxidermy and photography. Among the art featured are the digital renderings of Natalie Shau, the hauntingly disturbed photographs of John Santerineross and the monstrous paintings of Chet Za" ... Korero Books

"Strychnin Gallery and Korero Books are proud to announce the release of “Art that Creeps” – a new book showcasing young artists from around the world who work in traditional and not so traditional techniques and genres. Highlighting a selection of artists who eschew the cold, minimalist aesthetic that afflicts contemporary art, this book explores the truly sinister, hyper-real, and riotous blend of pop culture, fine art, and surrealism that is Neo-Gothic art. Associated with punk and dark fantasy, yet distinct from both, these risk-taking artists are represented with a selection of hundreds of amazing paintings from the U.S. and European Neo-Gothic scene. Yasha Young, the owner and gallerist of Strychnin Gallery, is the general editor of the book and wrote the foreward.

The artists featured in the book are: Jason Shawn Alexander, Wayne Martin Belger, Annie Bertram, Marina Bychkova, Nicoletta Ceccoli, Jan Czerwinski, Leslie Ditto, Melissa Forman, Naoto Hattori, Scott Holloway, Aunia Kahn, Richard Kirk, Ver Mar, Michael Page, Chris Peters, Michael Ryan, John Santerineross, Natalie Shau, David Stoupakis, Daniel Van Nes, Raf Veulemans, Madeline Von Foerster, and Chet Zar." ..... Strychnin Gallery Blog

For any local people, I am working on a release party of my own with a book signing. (Still in the works though) hopefully more to come on this subject. :)

Happy Friday the 13th!! The book I'm in "Art that Creeps" was just released in Berlin

The Beyond Eden Art Fair

The Beyond Eden Art Fair is a multi-gallery event celebrating the new contemporary art scene in Los Angeles. The public is invited to attend this special event and admission is free. After the success of last year's East of Eden exhibition which drew over 3,000 people, the organizers have decided to branch out the scope of the fair and expand the focus geographically to include galleries from all across Los Angeles. The goal of Beyond Eden is to celebrate the new contemporary movement that has been building momentum and a patron base in Los Angeles for the past several decades and is finally starting to receive mainstream recognition from major institutions and publications the world over. Organizers are partnering with some of Los Angeles' leading cultural and community organizations to help broaden the scope of the event. A percentage of the event's sales also will be donated to MOCA on behalf of the MOCA Contemporaries. The event organizers forecast this year's event to be even larger and more well received and are expecting upwards of 5,000 people to pass through over the weekend of October 9th, 10th and 11th, with an opening night celebration planned for Saturday, October 10th.

Beyond Eden will showcase the works of over 15 galleries, and will be held inside the beautiful confines of the historic Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. Billy Shire Fine Arts and La Luz De Jesus will be showcasing the art of Carrie Ann Baade, Lou Beach, Cathie Bleck, Dave Cooper, Bryan Cunningham, Jessica Dalva, Daniel Martin Diaz, Bob Dob, Myron Conan Dyal, PJ Fidler, Don Fritz, Mark Gleason, Scott Holloway, Max Grundy, Jessica Joslin, Caia Koopman, Chris Mars, Elizabeth McGrath, Matjames Metson, Lyle Motley, Nathan Ota, Jenn Porreca, Gail Potocki, John Puglisi, Kim Scott, Owen Smith, Magda Trzaski and Christopher Ulrich with new, never-before-seen works from Tony Fitzpatrick, Daniel Peacock, Chris Roberts-Antieau, Krystopher Sapp, Mark Todd and Esther Pearl Watson.

Beyond Eden will also feature an 'Artist Village' in the courtyard outside of the LAMAG in the beautiful confines of the Barnsdall Art Park. The 'Artist Village' will feature an array of live painters curated by the featured galleries alongside installations, live screen printing and performance art.

Founded in 1951, the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery is a historic 10,000 square foot facility located on the sprawling grounds of Olive Hill in the Barnsdall Art Park.

Cover for "Art That Creeps"

COVER OPTION FOR THE BOOK "ART THAT CREEPS" A new book coming out soon that I will be in. :)

Here is one of my friends images. I guess this will not be the official cover for the book but in my opinion is looks really sweet!

this is one of the cover options by my good friend Daniel Van Nes

The multi-disciplinary work of Dutch artist Daniël van Nes illuminates an undefined world that may be waiting for us in the future or for some already exist in the present. Heaven or hell, you can decide, while frightening and mysterious it is also tempting and compelling. A parallel universe that once observed slowly but surely creeps into our minds, contaminating everything it touches like a greasy black stain. His is an opera-noir world populated with lost and lonely creatures constantly driven by their own fears and desires. With his wood engravings and engraved light objects Daniël sets classic engraving into a completely new and modern perspective.

Daniël was born in 1972, in Terneuzen, the Netherlands . From a young age he attended classes at academies and art schools. After studying graphic design, he continued to study graphic arts at the Royal Academy of Arts in Antwerp , Belgium and got familiar with couture. In 2003 Daniël was nominated for Dutch Artist of the Year.

the work of Jessica Dalva, Scott Holloway, Misato Otake & Jasmine Worth
Jessica Dalva
"The Devouring of Dominic"
Jessica Dalva loves all things dusty and weathered – whether Victorian portraits of unhappy children or broken fence posts, abandoned and splintered. A mixture of sculpture, painting, fog, driftwood and crows, Dalva’s show draws mostly from the story of a sister who loses her brother to mysterious monsters thick in the fog and how she compensates for her loss by collecting piles of things she doesn’t need. “It seems to me that it is a common affliction these days to feel the need to acquire objects, or tasty treats, or gambling debts, in order to fill the spaces left behind by mysteries we cannot solve, loves lost or dreams abandoned; this show will look at how various people deal with inadequacies in their lives,” states Dalva. Dalva grew up in Northern California and recently graduated from Otis College of Art and Design with a BFA in illustration.

Scott Holloway
Scott Holloway’s work centers on the holy relics of Saints and biblical figures as highly detailed anatomical icons. Holloway fuses these images with passages from the Bible and text from medical treatise, sprinkled with a bit of Surrealism. Working with oil on panel as well as mixed media, Holloway’s pieces conjure up images torn from an old anatomy book, an icon that emerged from an unknown religion and skulls that remind us of our own mortality. Born in Bellingham, Massachusetts in 1969, Holloway discovered his talent at an early age. Encouraged by his teachers to pursue an art career, he explored realism in the tradition of the Northern Renaissance. His efforts won him several awards for his work in the late 1980s. In the 1990s, Holloway spent four years studying the oil painting techniques of the Old Masters at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Massachusetts under founding faculty George Gabin. Since then, Holloway has been working steadily from his studios in Worcester, and exhibiting his work at area galleries as well LA, NYC, Berlin and London.

Misato Otake
Murdered by Beauty
In her work Misato Otake expresses her affinity with the cute characters of Japanese pop culture and the tattoo, street art and rock ‘n ‘ roll music of contemporary Los Angeles. “Murdered by Beauty” tells of a tragic place where girls use their power of attraction to fulfill desire in a society where sex suppresses and ultimately destroys life and nature. Working with pen and ink, Otake loves to incorporate fine outlines in her acrylic and panel paintings. Otake has included among the 10 pieces in “Murdered by Beauty”, her first sculpture, created from Super Sculpy, wires, wood, and beads. Born in Japan, Otake moved to Los Angeles to study art at the age of 15 and currently works as a graphic designer and freelance illustrator.

Jasmine Worth
Inner Child
Jasmine Worth crafts scenes from fairytales gone awry—swirling seamlessly between the sweet and surreal, inevitably dipping into the valley of the morbid. Jasmine studied formally at Watts Atelier in Encinitas, California, and earned her BFA from the Laguna College of Art and Design. While she possesses the credentials, the product of her toils clearly pours from the cobwebbed corners of her mind, not the classroom. Her paintings—a cabaret of vibrant hues—are a blend of soft textures and colorful characters, juxtaposed against gloomy themes. Created in her home of San Diego, Jasmine combines dark influences and subtle-yet-serious undertones with raw artistic talent and a rarely seen creativity. Her work exudes a strong bearing of individuality, manifested through characters that speak almost vocally and give a new element of depth to an otherwise two dimensional medium. Worth has recently switched her medium from gouache to oil. Each scene tells a story and every story is as diverse in emotion as it is in appearance. "Inner Child” is based on the concept of the inner child manifest as an independent entity. It will be the largest collection of her oil works to date.

Carrie Ann Baade's solo show, "Intemperance", at Billy Shire Fine Arts Binnorie Arts

"Intemperance", at Billy Shire Fine Arts from June 13 - July 4, 2009. Carrie Ann Baade is a great artist and I am proud to say I have shown with her a couple of times in NYC. She paints using the same traditional materials as I do but she goes one step further and paints on copper. Many of the Norther Renaissance artists used copper because it would not expand or contract like wood does. These paintings last forever and if you see one in a museum it is usually in perfect condition.

Each image on the BSFA (Billy Shire Fine Arts) site has prices and a write up on the symbolism and the meaning of each work.

Movie time!

Here are two videos of my hand paintings. The first one is during the underpainting stage when I was painting in only black and white. The studio light was making everything orange so I filmed in b/w mode. Sorry it's dark. Youtube seems to make things darker than usual for some reason.

This second video is of all three paintings that I am finishing up. You get a good look at my skull and crossbones painting "Memento Mori".

three new works just waiting to be finished off!

Here is a sneak peak of a few new paintings I am just about to finish off. I will be sending these to La Luz de Jesus Gallery in LA. I'm part of a four person show in August. I'll be shipping about 14 works for this show. It's a great mix of drawings and paintings!

These pics are from the first few layers of each work. I am just finishing these guys off now and will post more soon.

I already have one more involved image I am just about to start transferring onto a panel, and plans for at least one other. Can't talk about those right now...

Wednesday, April 22, 2009


Friend of mine Sarah Brueck is a jewelry artist and is going to make a collar (i think) out of this painting. This is almost ready for me to start adding color. I have worked on it some since taking this. This stage is called the "underpainting".

gettin' busy

I've been away from the blog lately because I have been working on some new ideas for some upcoming shows. My priority right now is getting ready for a new show in LA. I have just showed my Sacred Heart painting at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in their annual show called"Everything But the Kitschen Sync". (see prior blog) The painting sold and it generated a second sale from someone that googled me after the show.

I was just contacted by Billy Shire, the owner of the gallery and he asked me if I would be interested in a second show in August. He told me that it would be a more concentrated show of the best from the Kitschen Sync show. There will be four of us of the 109 artists that participated!! Needless to say I am psyched! Of course the group show was a milestone for me because this is a major gallery for my type of work. And now to be part of the top % of that group is beyond my expectations.

" La Luz de Jesus Gallery was established in 1986 in Los Angeles, California as the brainchild of entrepreneur and art collector Billy Shire. Shire is considered largely responsible for fostering a new school of art in Los Angeles prompting JUXTAPOZ Magazine to dub him "the Peggy Guggenheim of Lowbrow.

La Luz de Jesus showcases mainly figurative, narrative paintings, and unusual sculpture. The exhibitions are considered post-pop; the art content ranges from folk to outsider to religious to sexually deviant. The gallery's main objective is to bring underground artists and counter culture to the masses.

Some of the past shows have been groundbreaking, introducing unknown artists who have become great names in the modern art world. La Luz de Jesus helped to establish artists such as Manual Ocampo and Joe Coleman, and hosted Robert Williams' art exhibits before he became a household name.

The gallery opens a new exhibit every month, with an opening reception that Details Magazine calls "the biggest and best party in Los Angeles."

here is a great spot on the show!!!

a quick quote from the article:

“Everything But the Kitschen Sync”. This gigantic, no-theme exhibition will feature work from what we feel are some of the most relevant artists working today.

ok, I'm off to work! :)

just discovered my painting in this weeks WoMag! :) pick one up!

Thanks Worcester Magazine!

I was telling a friend that another friend of mine (Brian Burris) is in the womag this week. (womag: short for worcester magazine for you non locals ) She picked up some subs and came back with a womag. I thought his article was in the back so we turned the pages for the back forward. Suprise! We find my pick in the INDIE BILLBOARD

The Indie Billboard is a designated spot for visual artists located in the "Night and Day" section of the zine. Its run by Doreen Manning.

I dont know why but the webpage is empty for some reason but if you pick up a copy just about anywhere in worcester you will see one of the two paintings that is right now in transit to Berlin Germany's Strychnin Gallery. (that was one sentence)

These two works will be on display in the Vault the night of the Open Reception for a new show called "WHALELESS"

Monday, March 16, 2009

I just shipped these two paintings to Strychnin Gallery today. I had them both framed as a set on the chance someone wants both of them. Hey, it could happen.
They should be arriving just in time for their next opening reception on the 27th.

I'll blog about the details of this show sat.

My Sacred Heart Series

I just sold a painting in La Luz de Jesus Gallery 's annual show "Everything But the Kitschen Sync" and that has sparked a new sale of another one of my "Sacred Heart" series paintings. It seems that someone went to the reception and saw my work and liked it enough to search me out and email me about other work.

I am psyched to say that I may have another sale sparked from this show! She asked me what else I had from this series. She picked out another painting called "Sacred Heart". (sorry for the lack of imaginative titles)

I just realized that this painting that she is interested in is the one that is going to be in the encyclopedia. (see prior blog)
Lexikon der Phantastischen Künstler’, is an encyclopedia in german language of artists working in the fantastic, surrealistic, visionary, fantasy and symbolic style. I believe they got the image off the Beinart Internatinal Sureal Art Collective. If you look at my profile on that site I have an outdated version of this painting that I have since added a halo behind the heart. (you can scroll through these images to see it in progress)

Saturday, March 7, 2009

Is happy the painting in LA sold!

Can't wait for my receptions in Worcester and LA tomorrow night!

Me in an Encyclopedia!!!

I will be getting published again!! This is a BIG DEAL for me because I feel like I am officially an artist and will leave some sort of mark in history. I feel a little more respected. A little more "street cred" if you will. I was just recently published in "20 Artists of Worcester" by Scott Erb and Julie Grady

Lexikon der Phantastischen Künstler’, is an encyclopedia in german language of artists working in the fantastic, surrealistic, visionary, fantasy and symbolic style. This book is a truely huge project with 1,000 artist included from 60 countries!

It will be on sale very soon for € 62 = 78.4424 U.S. dollars. If you look at the site under "B" you will see one of my friends Jon Beinart. I love his "Toddlerpeds".

I hope to own one some day. He runs a site that I am a part of called Beinart Internatinal Sureal Art Collective. This site has a lot to offer like upcomming event posts, artist oppertunities for show, forums and profiles. I believe that I was found by the author of the book through this site so I feel I owe Jon Kudos.

Optical Illlusion

This is a video of my painting of "Time & Nature". The painting is not framed but the framed prints that I have do not seem to create this affect. The frame must stop this from happening I guess.
Here is a better look at the image.

saying goodbye to my child

saying goodbye to my child
Originally uploaded by paintingloftcom.

it is always a strange feeling when you ship a painting to a gallery. you never know if you will ever see it again. strange to say but you don't want to! you hope it sells and that's how being an artist works. any real artist will tell you that creating art,music or whatever is not just going through the motions. there is emotions as well. Tori Amos calls her song "children". it's fitting i think.

this child is going to HOLLYWOOD! :) to the 12th annual group show at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery on Hollywood blvd. in LA. Called

"Everything But the Kitschen Sync" the 12

Going In All Directions!

*Sending work to LA and Oregon.

*Getting a painting finished for the new "Moments of Grace" show in Worcester.

*Getting two works ready for Strychnin Gallery in Berlin.(check them out! I'm on there "artist" page. )

*Sending images for a possible inclusion in another book that they are putting together in NYC called "Art That Creeps".

Planning a few new works for a show in November in their Berlin location.


*Waiting for Book number 2 to come out in Austria.

Lexikon der Phantastischen Künstler’,

an encyclopedia in german language of artists working in the fantastic, surrealistic, visionary, fantasy and symbolic style.

This book is a truely huge project with 1,000 artist included from 60 countries! (just imagine all the languages they needed to translate) This kinda makes it official to be included in an "encyclopedia". right? I feel like I have a little more credibility. It's definitely gonna be cool! A bit about the author : Gerhard Habarta is since 1958 curator, author, editor and publisher of exhibitions and books about 20th century art and fantastic artists work.

... did I mention the relaunch of this Blog?
