New Prints

Two of my prints are for sale on Little Paper Planes, the online store based in San Francisco. See the prints below and find more information here.

Four Thieves Vinegar Print

The Legend of Four Thieves Vinegar In the midst of the bubonic plague, four thieves secured their freedom from captivity by divulging a preventive homeopathic concoction rumored to ward off the disease. Herbs, garlic and vinegar were rendered into a solution that was to be applied to cotton wraps covering the body and face. Whether a clever con on a desperate people or a true prevention against the plague, the mixture was a ray of hope in a fearful time.

The print is made with archival pigment inks on Stonehenge drawing paper. It is signed by the artist, dated and numbered in an edition of 15. The print measures 16 x 20 inches.

The multiple is hand signed and numbered in an edition of 15 with printed title and date. The work measures 11 x 14 inches.

Expo 2010

Two of my paintings were selected for this year's 500X Gallery annual juried show. I have included small reproductions below, but there's nothing like seeing the real thing. With that in mind the 500X opening is this Saturday night, January 16 from 7-10 PM.

The Expo 2010 jurors were husband and wife team Richard Patterson and Christina Rees. Christina Rees is currently the Curator of Fort Worth Contemporary Arts, TCU and once ran Road Agent Gallery in Dallas. I was a big fan of Road Agent. Richard Patterson is a lauded British artist with an impressive CV that includes the legendary Freeze show curated by Damien Hurst.
