Morganne de toi at H Gallery, Paris

I am thrilled to announce the opening of my solo show, Morganne (Morganne de toi), at H Gallery, this Thursday, February 22nd, in Paris, France.

Morganne (Morganne de toi) is a visual narrative told in 14 parts. A departure from my previous  work, Morganne (Morganne de toi) is a self contained storyline centered on themes of memory, desire, transformation and escape. The images in this series represent singular moments connected through common threads of setting, character and costume. The narrative, while tangibly present, is purposefully left up to the viewer to arrange and rearrange, adding their own perspective with each iteration. 

My website will be updated with images from the show after it's opening. In the mean time please contact H Gallery for more information or to receive a preview of the show. 

Morganne (Morganne de toi) is on view at H Gallery, Paris from 22nd February - 31 March, 2018.
The opening is 22 February, from 6pm to 9pm.

Lord of the Thrones at Spoke Art SF

I grew up playing Dungeons & Dragons and filling my sketchbooks with rough imitations of Frank Frazetta and Boris Vallejo art. I lived on a healthy diet of fantasy novels and dreamed of becoming an illustrator worthy of my idols. Life took me down a different path but recently I was able to relive my childhood aspirations when I agreed to contribute two pieces to Spoke Art's upcoming Lord of the Thrones group show.

Lord of the Thrones is an art show tribute to the legendary works of George R.R. Martin and J.R.R. Tolkien. Featuring paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints by over 60 international artists, Spoke Art has organized a "dazzling display of character portraits, elaborate environments and iconic themes and motifs from both series." My contributions (seen above) depict two iconic "bad guys" from the film and television adaptations of both series. On the left is The Night's King (Game of Thrones), the leader of the White Walkers, created by the Children of the Forest to fight the First Men. On the right is Lurtz (Lord of the Rings), the leader of the fighting Uruk-hai scouts responsible for the death of Boromir and capture of Pippin and Merry. Both watercolors are small, measuring 6"x9" (15.25x23cm) each and matted and framed in dark gray and deep brown. 

Lord of the Thrones opens tonight, Thursday, June 2nd, in San Francisco. The opening reception is from 6-10pm and will remain on view through Saturday, June 25th. More information about these pieces or others from the show can be found HERE, or by contacting Spoke Art directly, HERE
