Opening April 13th: "Learning About Light," a solo show in Santa Fe.

"Learning About Light: October." Ink on wood panel, 16" x 20".
"May You Find the Sublime." Ink on birch round, approx 5.5" diameter.

Join me at the opening on April 13th, 5-7pm, at Iconik.

I'll share an innovative series of recent ink and mixed media paintings on wood in the show “Learning About Light.” Drawing inspiration from the natural and the mechanical, this work assembles a unique vocabulary of patterns, textures, and color to create an abstracted language for the residue of seasons, synesthesia, and hope.

Show is on view April 13th - June 4th, 2018.
