It’s a real pleasure to announce that  2 of my paintings will be on display at George Billis Gallery in Los Angeles in May. I’ve been connected with the gallery for a couple years now, showing a few pieces in their Culver City, LA gallery as well as a few in their home gallery located in Chelsea, NYC.

These pieces will be included in a group exhibition between May 19th – June 23rd, 2018. An opening reception will be held Saturday May 19, 5-8pm. If you’re in the LA area, I recommend checking out the gallery. Read more below.

Absolute: Position is painted on a reclaimed antique mahogany end table top. This particular type of tilt-top table is called a pie crust table, due to the raised edge resembling the crimped edge of a pie. These tables have been around for a couple hundred years as their pedestal base and collapsible top was ideal for easy storage. During the early 20th century its size proved to be perfect for holding telephones, lamps, or table top games. Naturally this secured it again as a staple in most households.
