The CICA Museum Publishes “Artist Statement” Art-Book, My Work Included
by Daric Gill
After finishing out the year on display at the Czong Institute for Contemporary Art Museum in South Korea, my painting Absolute: Earnest has come home. The exhibition called Artist Statement has been published in an art-book that showcases a side-by-side documentation of the artwork and the artist’s statement. The concept behind the exhibit and the art-book is to show the connections between an artist’s work and their written philosophies. Read more below.
Absolute: Position, my newest oil painting, is currently on its way to The George Billis Gallery in Los Angeles. I’ve been loosely connected with the gallery for a couple years now, showing a few pieces in their Culver City, LA gallery as well as the home gallery located in Chelsea, NYC.
It’s a real pleasure to announce that they will be receiving another piece on the west coast and I urge anyone in the area to check out the gallery. Read more below…

The Pizzuti Collection Displays ‘Art For Life’ Artwork
by Daric Gill
If you are familiar with the Pizzuti Collection in any way, you’ll know that they are a powerhouse in the world of contemporary art collections. Situated in the Short North Arts District next to the Goodale Park, the Pizzuti Collection museum houses a rotating collection of privately owned works of art from around the globe. This year they’ve partnered up with the great people at Equitas Health for the biennial Art For Life benefit. Together they will present the 2016 Art for Life event and fund ventures that will support both AIDS research and youth arts education. I’ve taken part in this cause in the past, but I’m especially excited for this newly struck partnership and the added benefits it provides.
You can see one of my latest paintings in volume 34 of Studio Visit Magazine, along with a number of other talented artists. Studio Visit is a series of juried artist books with a national audience of art world professionals. You may also be familiar with their sister publication, New American Paintings(both produced by Open Studios Press). My painting, “Absolute: Contrive” can be found on p. 72 of their latest magazine.
