NEW! The Headless Highwheeler is a ToeHead painted on a maple violin back. It was purchased by The Pumpkin Pedaler Foundation, an organization that promotes autism awareness. This piece will be awarded to the winner of their second annual fall cycling fundraiser. The Headless Highwheeler can be mounted on a cherry base or hung on the wall.
“The Pumpkin Pedaler Foundation was founded to promote autism awareness, education, and research through community events in Columbus. Our goal is to engage participants in the conversation and call them to action while providing an entertaining background.”
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.
The occasional conversational sidebar can prove to be a helpful way to add extra depth to a particular idea without stepping aside completely. As the Absolute series has grown, there has been several micro-series within the larger set. Absolute: Contrive and its sister painting Absolute: Construct are such examples. Both pieces(photos below) are the same size and expand upon similarly themed content. Read on for more information.
I am honored to announce that a few Absolute paintings will grace the walls of birthplace and childhood home of famous 20th century painter, Edward Hopper. Now a non-profit art center and museum, the Edward Hopper House holds exhibits and informative courses for the public. The main gallery will house this year’s annual Small Matters of Great Importance exhibit, in which will be the location of 3 of my Absolute pieces. Small Matters of Great Importance is an annual juried exhibition of small works of no more than 12″ x 12″ inches. Read on for more information.
