I have been selected to be included in this show. I am thrilled, as one of my goals this year has been to be invited into exhibitions, So far this and the next show, Color Perspectives are by invitation only.
Here is the blurb for Social Icing at the Sam Francis Gallery in Santa Monica
Social Icing opens conversation between the creator and consumer. Through strong graphics/ configuration and powerful voices, the pieces exhibited in Social Icingspeak to the viewer. By bringing awareness to social issues and societal constraints, with an inviting, psychological environment, a new dialect evolves in order to properly communicate. The work in this show speaks to the community above the individual while rewarding each person’s diligence through the “Icing” of the work’s glamor.
Opening February 20th runs until March 15th. My new rescued refuse art is the selection.
Here is a link to the winners of this years 2018 event.

TOAF LA: You've Been Selected As Part of Kate Bryan's '31Women'
I come bearing good news! You have been selected as the 31 artists for Kate Bryan's '31 Women' exhibition onsite at The Other Art Fair! We did a similar exhibition at the London fair last weekend which garnered tons of great press for the artists and the fair as a whole.
Below is a little bit about the 31 Women exhibition and what it represents:
Curated by Kate Bryan, Arts Broadcaster and Head of Collections for Soho House and Co. globally, 31 Women marks the 31st edition of The Other Art Fair and the 75th year anniversary of the iconic exhibition of the same name at Peggy Guggenheim’s gallery, Art of This Century.
31 women takes the form of a small exhibition within the main context of the fair, highlighting one work each by 31 female artists who are all participating in The Other Art Fair LA. This mini salon draws together sculpture, collage, neon, photography, figurative and abstract painting in the same inclusive spirit of Guggenheim’s original show.
The original 31 women took place in January 1943 at Guggenheim’s New York gallery. It was the first exhibition of its kind to highlight women artists who were largely absent from mainstream gallery and museum shows. Over 7 decades later permanent collections in museums across Europe and North America have on average only 3-5% artwork by female artists. At best you can hope to see women’s artwork around 30% of the time in a progressive gallery or institution, in most it is often far less. This exhibition is therefore part homage to Guggenheim, one of the greatest art patrons of the twentieth century, but it is also part protest against the continued male dominance of the art world today.
Congratulations on this amazing accomplishment! We'll be in touch soon to request artworks for the exhibition.

The title of the exhibition Altered States, refers to the potential of art to lead the viewer to another sense of self and place. My artwork is an investigation in transformation, hence creating a reference to different states of being. This can be achieved through physical and spiritual means. My creative process centers on manipulating and deconstructing the traditional expectations of painting. I am concerned with functional concerns as well as the fragility of such. I work as an Alchemist, transforming a few humble materials into three-dimensional paintings which are imbued with their own history and aesthetic values. I want to capture the essence of a landscape, whether urban or global, into something transformative and tangible which is simple, hopeful and beautiful.
I've been home for a week. The residency offered me the time to slow down and reflect on the work have I created in the past and my new work for the future. Thinking about my new goals, staying focused and being selective as to where I want to sell and show my artwork. So the first day I come home I see that one of my pieces was purchased for the permanent collection for Inglewood. Urban Quake will now be residing close to home.
February is turning out to be a very busy month. As president of the SCWCA, we will be hosting the national conference in Los Angeles. Several exhibitions have been scheduled. Jill Moniz juried for our show at Arena One Gallery in Santa Monica. "Art Speaks! Lend Us Your Voice", is the theme. My altered art piece, Urban Decay was selected for this show. This piece has been a favorite of many people and surprised it hasn't found a home yet.
Christine Rasmussen invited me to a group exhibition entitled "Memories on Location", at the Keystone Galleries in Downtown, LA. And finally, received a notice today January 24th that my work, "Hurricane" was selected for the Group Show Trappings, at Gallery 825.
Can this year get any better!
