The Stripescape prints continue their life on the road, now with a stop in Denver as part of Art Gym's second annual imPressed exhibition. Entitled Destructive Beauty, this show features 27 prints highlighting current trends in contemporary American printmaking across a variety of traditional, alternative, and experimental print processes. 

I'll be represented this time by "Stripescape II", published by Petrichor Press.

Catch my work featured in INK IT: Contemporary Print Practices in the Kay Gallery at BlackRock Center for the Arts in Germantown, MD. This exhibition features works by 52 regional artists "who choose both traditional and nontraditional printmaking processes to communicate images and words in multiple." 

Techniques include engraving, lithography, woodcut, mixed media monotype, collograph, etching, aquatint, chine collé, screenprinting, letterpress, photogravure, cyanotype, solarplate processes, and archival inkjet printing.

I'll be represented by "Stripescape I", published by Petrichor Press.

Drawing is central to how I interpret the world. I'm pleased to announce my participation in Paper Work, a group exhibition at Snyderman-Works that surveys work by eleven Philadelphia-based artists "whose work is not only insightful and well-crafted, but also speaks to critical, social and cultural topics." Here, "paper retains primacy as the structural support or medium of expression."

I'll be represented by "Stacked Grid", the cardboard and paint piece above, as well as three prints from Petrichor Press, including the editioned "Stripescape" works as well as a one-of-a-kind variation signed as a color-trial-proof.

Here's a great video segment on New Urban Optics, the show at the Sydney Kimmel Center for Radiation Oncology at Jefferson Hospital, organized by Revolvd. It tells the story of how the show came together and has so far improved the everyday experience of patients and staff. The video features many works of mine including frequent detail shots. See if you can spot them all.

The piece aired on PHL17 the morning of May 17. Watch it at the link below:

New Urban Optics runs through July at Jefferson Hospital's Sydney Kimmel Center for Radiation Oncology, 111 S. 11th St, Philadelphia.

Twenty works of mine are now adorning hallways and patient spaces at Jefferson Hospital's Sydney Kimmel Center for Radiation Oncology. New Urban Optics presents my work alongside fellow Philadelphian artist Anthony Torcasio through a project with Revolvd Art, which curates exhibitions of local artists within commercial and non-traditional spaces.

The aesthetic results are pretty strange - juxtaposing fine art alongside scales, medical equipment, and numerous Purell dispensers under sometimes dreary hospital lighting. This contrast, however, seems to be lost among the staff I've met so far who are quite enthusiastic about the art we've installed in thei...
