Andante

Opening May 4th 2018 5-9pm 124 West Pike Street Gallery, Covington Kentucky.
Located just across the river from Cincinnati Ohio, Covington Ky has a rich artistic history and vibrant art scene.
I am happy to be working again with art dealer Suzanna Terrill, the new director of the Pike St Gallery.
Andante is my first solo show in many years. Having taken some time off to work in the Olfactory arts, it has been a great boost to be able to jump back into my visual work and have that work be so well received.

For the last four years I have been working  (in a way) to regain my footing. Leaving behind a style of working, creating constructed found object art, to a place where canvas, paint, palette knives and brushes are my day to day choices.

ANDANTE: Is a look into the past two years of work. Work that I have approached with a bit of restraint. Not wanting to get ahead of myself, and at the same time wanting to fully understand where I am and how emotion and feeling affect my work. It has also been about putting into practice my daily meditations, observations and general philosophy of being in the moment and letting that energy pull me along.
Like andante, it is a slower movement, a walking pace.

All of the work in the show are oil paintings, either on paper, wood or canvas.
Show runs May 4th thru the 25th 2018
