Artwork

[looking for Smoconuts?]

The artist's work is to draw
a frame around the world. 

My paintings celebrate the beauty that surrounds us by calling attention to it. This spill is exquisite. Notice the texture, the composition, the intricate details of tiny splashes and the impossibly pure gradients from where it puddled when I poured it out.

 

Don't miss the show, you lucky human. Stop, as it were, and smell the roses.

I am inspired by the color-field art of American painters like Mark Rothko, Gene Davis, and Helen Frankenthaler. I work with Kool-aid, which I drank a lot of as a child, and India ink, on watercolor paper. Typical paintings are 80in x 42in (about 2M x 1M).

 

Want to buy one? Twenty-five percent of all proceeds go to support The Good Listening Project, a nonprofit that helps fight burnout in healthcare.

I'm also in the process of creating a coffee table book of my work, along with some writing I think you'll enjoy. The book will feature a series of smaller paintings I did during Abralind Art Week 2021. This video shows the impromptu gallery I made of them at the end of the week (it's about a minute and a half long). The theme, This Is Not Precious, refers to a mantra of my work & life: "If you treat everything like it is precious, you will never have any breakthroughs."

I expect the book to be available for sale as a fancy Collector's Edition and a more affordable Standard Edition in the summer of 2022.
