Update 2016

July 8, 9 & 10 I will be show­ing pieces from the Cityscapes Col­lec­tion at the 55th Anniver­sary Toron­to Out­door Art Exhi­bi­tion. It will be three days out in the ele­ments talk­ing to hun­dreds of peo­ple. Come see me at Booth 183.

Ear­ly in 2016 I trav­elled to Man­as­sas Vir­ginia to take part in ilia Anossov’s mas­ter class fres­co work­shop. Iona Bel­cea had been com­mis­sioned to fres­co the altar wall of a new­ly built chapel and ilia was the fres­co con­sul­tant. The four day course was enlivened by a spec­tac­u­lar bliz­zard that had us snowed in. Present­ly I an work­ing on an ambi­tious plan for my own large scale fres­co. It will be a huge amount of work, incred­i­bly heavy, hard to trans­port and frag­ile. Why? You might ask.

I have also been work­ing on a series of geo­met­ric abstrac­tions paint­ed with stain on raw wood pan­els. These pieces were indi­rect­ly inspired by my study of the Sis­tine Chapel. While I have of late been hard pressed for time to pur­sue it, the poten­tial of this explo­ration feels vast and exciting.
