My work will be exhibited as a solo feature in the upcoming exhibition at the Denver-based gallery MICHAEL WARREN CONTEMPORARY. The exhibition entitled Layered Perspectives will feature recent work from my "art-is-fact" series. The exhibition will be on view from September 9 through October 11, 2014. There will be three receptions on the following dates:

Opening Reception: Friday, September 12, 6-9pm
Collector’s Friday: September 19, 6-9pm
First Friday: October 3, 6-9pm

I will be present at the first reception on Friday, September 12 so I hope to see you there if you are in the Denver area!


Lately I have been thinking about the realm of consciousness (reality) and the realm where I make art (intuitive subconsciousness). Creativity seems like the point of access between those two realms. The paintings are the artifacts of that access, the tangible result of that journey. When I go to the other place these symbols, shapes, lines and materials make important truths, but when brought back to this world they are often untranslatable into the language of fact.

I think the new work attempts to map the journey between worlds. There are arrows pointing the way, offering emphatic directions or suggestions of space. Ultimately they are useless because there is no one way to arrive at creativity, no one path, no one direction to take. There are many different paths and these signs are like emphatic clues that may or may not be helpful.
