- Convergence 2015 Solo Show at Rickoli's Brewery
Solo Art Exhibition. The series explores futuristic imagery of future destruction continuing our behavior of war and destruction. There will also be the contrasting imagery of utopian scenes of beauty and how things could be transformed for the better. The scenes of chaos and destruction serve as a reminder that this side of us can exist within us all. The somewhat ambiguous message and style of my paintings let the viewer determine a message and even subject that best speaks to them. Using a mixture of futurism with ancient symbolism and archetypal imagery, I conjure up recollections from the subconscious. With this show I also have done a lot of live painting using the concept of projection mapped live painting.
