When I wrote my first artist’s statement over fifteen years ago, it wasn’t so much a statement about my art as it was a love letter to my muse, completely and unabashedly from the heart, but perhaps best kept in a shoebox. If like me, you have no mastery of words, instead of a letter, imagine giving a work of art to yourself or someone you love. Art is long-lasting, metaphorically rich, keeps you company, speaks meaningfully in wordless language, and enriches your life. To paraphrase Shakespeare, the art’s the thing.
I would like to invite you to a group show I’m in called “WannA Piece?” curated by Francesci Arcilesi Fine Art. The opening party is Wednesday, February, 8th from 6-9 at 122 W. 26th street (btw 6th and 7th Ave), on the 5th floor at Contra Studios, NYC.
Below is the artwork that I’ll have in the show. 40″x60″; 2012; Watercolor, ink & enamel on transparency film mounted on archival paper.
Box art. Outside: Watercolor, ink and enamel. Inside: Poured enamel with tiny people caught in daily life.
