A drawing a day

For 30 days, I’m going to produce a drawing a day. Some days this may be elaborate, some days simple. These could be collaborative or solo drawings, pen and ink, pencil, complex and shaded or simple doodles. The goal is to keep generating ideas without pressure…or work through a lack of ideas. I’ll post these to a Facebook album here.

Shootout at the DaDa Salon

Shootout at the DaDa Salon brings together nine DC-area artists whose work defies expectations, taking the viewer on a winding journey. Surrealism? Dada? These local artists march to the beat of their own drummers. In these works, they redefine aesthetics as they so please, confront cultural mores, swallow them, digest them, and defy logic in works that stand in a universe of each artist’s own creation. This diverse collection of 2D and 3D works alludes to reality, but a reality that has been twisted and subjected to each artist’s will. Their unique voices help us reflect on the sometimes harsh realities of our physical world and our ability, through art and humor, to transcend them.

DC Arts Center Wall Mountables 2013

I usually work on a larger scale, but switched things up for DC Arts Center’s Wall Mountables 2013, creating a small scale, 16×20″ painting. DCAC is a community resource that supports some of the area’s most interesting emerging visual artists as well as theater initiatives. Their annual open Wall Mountables show attracts a wide range of participants and is a great opportunity to find smaller and more affordable works for sale, connect with creative folks of all stripes in DC, and enjoy art.  The opening reception is a great party, and will be held this Friday at DCAC’s Adams Morgan space: Continue reading
