I'm pleased to share some exciting news from art journal Peripheral Vision Arts. I've been awarded a Publication Fellowship for their forthcoming Salon 2017, and will be featured in the publication with a portfolio of my work.
From their release:
Peripheral Vision is pleased to award Publication Fellowships to forty eight emerging and mid-career professional American artists in conjunction with our inaugural salon-style exhibition, curated by critic Georgia Erger. Submitted works represent the diversity of contemporary art practice and occupy various points of intersection around common themes and aesthetic concerns. Salon 2017, forthcoming this fall, will take the form of an introductory essay by the curator containing links to artist project pages.
I look forward to seeing the all of the work together with Georgia Ergers' commentary when the publication is released this fall.
Thank you to Peripheral Vision Arts for the opportunity to be part of such a great group of artists. To check out the full list of artists, click here.
Two of my paintings were recently published in The New Nude, an art publication by PoetsArtists magazine, curated by Walt Morton.
I was so thrilled to receive the book - not just to see my paintings, but because the rest of the work was so fascinating. Flipping through the pages, I felt inspired and motivated. In today's art world, it's considered a little old-fashioned to focus on painting the figure, but the artists in this printed exhibition confirm that figure painting is still as relevant, modern, and fresh as ever.
