It's always good to be displayed by the cocktail and caterer's area - draws a crowd.















Hollywood likes to mingle and connect, especially when they feel comfortable - away from the paparazzi.

Note: The exhibition prospectus requested all artists to use a horizontal orientation for the artworks. It is very unusual for me to create in this manner due to my vertical preference but I couldn't pass up the opportunity (perhaps once in a lifetime) to exhibit in Finland.

Hoyt Gallery at the Keck School of Medicine (University of Southern California) in Los Angeles, CA presents “PAIN 2”, an international exhibition featuring artworks depicting physical and mental pain. "Our hope is this exhibit will give medical students a visual representation of what their future patients will be going though. We want them to see their patients as people, not just symptoms." I also participated in the first "PAIN" exhibit (2014) at UCLA. For info click here.

Exhibition Calendar:  September 1 – Oct 27, 2017

I was discussing my process of creating artwork with one of my collectors and decided to produce a short series of photos which provide a glimpse into the various stages. Each piece is a result of hundreds (perhaps thousands) of decisions and changes, some very subtle, others dramatic. Sometimes I begin with a quick drawing using pencil or watercolor marker (as in this artwork). More frequently I start by applying paint or collaged elements then use various media and techniques to bring the piece to resolution. This small artwork required approximately 26 actual working hours over a period of 3 days. (The slideshow loop is in 10 second intervals.)

In the year 1517, clergyman Martin Luther posted his Ninety-five Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. This document was a list of theological issues he had with the prescribed teachings of the Church of Rome, beginning what has come to be known as the Protestant Reformation. To commemorate the 500th anniversary of this event, an international exhibition in honor of Martin Luther is being hosted in Germany. 

The exhibit will be presented during the autumn of 2017. An organizing committee is currently negotiating with venues to select a location for the exhibition and details will be posted when available.

An international art exhibit will be presented at Palangkaraya, Indonesia which is on the island commonly known as Borneo. The city name Palangkaraya, translates from the local language into English as a "vast sacred site" and furthermore informs the theme of this exhibition, which is "Storytelling".

The exhibit will travel to 3 different venues throughout the region during the summer of 2017. The venues are: Studio Kurik Art Gallery, Kopihan Coffee House & Art Gallery and Rahan Untung (The Floating Cafe).

Exhibition Calendar: July thru September 2017.

Art Exhibition - Germany

Exhibition Statement: EiBrot, a tribute to eggs on bread all over the world. 

The only thing that is important is the aesthetics, the colors, the proportions and the composition of the Egg Sandwich. Apart from that the Egg Sandwich will not change anything, it will not criticize anything and it want´s no discussion. In this project the egg is not a symbol of beginning life, the bread is not a symbol for the human being or man-made things or even a divine symbol, the eating of the Egg Sandwich is not a vanitas motif. It´s not erotic and it´s not political. An Egg Sandwich is a bread with an egg on it, a little piece of artwork, beautiful and delicious - and nothing else.
