Mondo Tondo at Arcadia Contemporary

I am honored to announce that my work will be included in Mondo Tondo, a group show opening this Saturday, March 16th, at Arcadia Contemporary in Pasadena, California. Many thanks to Artefex for supplying each artist in the show with a 24” diameter circular panel on which to make their work. For my piece, I chose to tackle the subject of Ophelia, drawing inspiration from a poem by French poet, Arthur Rimbaud.

On the calm black water where the stars are sleeping
White Ophelia floats like a great lily;
Floats very slowly, lying in her long veils...
- In the far-off woods you can hear them sound the mort.
— Arthur Rimbaud, Ophelia

Mondo Tondo is free and open to the public. The opening reception will be held Saturday, March 16th, from 6-9pm. If you would like to know more about the show or inquire about any of the works show, please contact info@arcadiacontemporary.com.

Five and Under at Arcadia Contemporary

Persephone_1_web.jpg

I'm thrilled to announce that I currently have three new watercolors available through Arcadia Contemporary. Inspired, in part, by Louise Glück's poem, "A Myth of Devotion," these paintings touch on the ideas of love, lust and possession as explored in the Greek myth of Persephone and Hades.

Each watercolor is 12 x 16 inches (30.5 x 40.6 cm) and is painted on Arches Cold Press watercolor paper mounted on aluminum composite panel.
