SHADOW CABINET PROGRESS REPORTSaturday, January 11, 2014
Apologies for the lack of posts lately. It is in less than 2 months that will see the opening of "Shadow Cabinet", an upcoming solo show at Cave Gallery in Los Angeles. Shadow Cabinet will be a natural continuation of The House of Uncommons and will be a sort of synthesis for the various styles of work I've done over the last 3 years. The show will be entirely new paintings on canvas and will marry the style and form of my "Acid in the Ice Cream" series with the painterly-ness and character building of The House of Uncommons.
Here are some studio snaps of the work in progress. I have been building explosive backgrounds using watercolor and smokebomb primarily, then building the characters over top. I've been spending a lot of time lately rendering clothing wrinkles.. which is time consuming, but a great exercise in painting and ultimately, kind of fun.
Take a peek and see more in a week or so when I post the next round of progress...

Shadow Cabinet is the name of my next solo show taking place next year, in march, at Cave Gallery in LA. The show will be entirely new paintings on panel and will be a follow up to The House of Uncommons which took place in Portland this year. I wanted to post periodic snapshots of the painting work in progress for this show, so I'll start with the following below.. These are 3 paintings in progress for the show in various states of completion.. I have yet to formulate offical titles and descriptions for these, but the "bird" painting is really coming along...
