Thursday, February 5th 2015, 5-9 PM: "AMERICANA" Opening on Lexington & 33rd

I'm happy to show 7 pieces at TransForm Gallery in Manhattan:200 Lexington Ave (33rd Street). 3 of the pieces are fresh off my painting ledge and that is always really exciting to me. It's what I just started to call "retro-collage" - collaging in parts of the image originally used to create the painting. It makes for abstract shapes that peacefully co exist within the figurative shapes and it really warms up my color scheme ... Sally and Kara are really gracious ladies who run the gallery. The exhibit will run through May 3rd and the opening will be quite a festivity - so join me! There are several galleries on the 7th floor  that will be celebrating openings - let's defy the cold and have a great time ... I'll see you there!

Thank you all for your support and love thus far. Should you want a piece of me before fame and fortune hits me like a brick, please do not hesitate to bid. This is a piece I am very proud of - it is also the first where I implement, not only collage, but retro collage. Feel free to pass this  message on as well.


Your most serious painter of the so so abstract, it's concrete!



This Wednesday I am part of a wonderful competition - one of 24 artists (painters, photographers and installation artists) shortlisted for the Young Masters Prize 2014 with a star studded jury. Our work will be hanging next to work created more than 200 years ago.
