“LAWS OF ABSTRACTION”

  

 I DECIDED RECENTLY WITH THE TURN OF EVENTS IN MY LIFE TO PURPOSELY INJECT POSITIVITY AND WARMNESS INTO THE ATMOSPHERE NOT ONLY FOR MY OWN BENFIT AND VIBES BUT FOR THE PEOPLE AROUND ME AS WELL. I WANTED TO MAKE SOMEYTHING BEAUTIFUL. THIS IS INSPIRED BY JAZZ AND LIFE AND WAS DONE WITH A MIXED MEDIA TECHNIQUE. I HOPE YOU ENJOY.

“BLACK THOUGHTS”

Excited and proud to finally unveil my newest piece. This piece like all means a lot to me but I have to admit there is something sweet about making a piece this large. It took me approximately 2 nights to finish it and was done with a mixed technique on cardboard. The subject matter of the piece is a scattered universe of sub-conscience thoughts. To me it’s reassurance of my place in this world and a defining moment in my artistry, I’m an artist and I’ll never stop creating. Ever. This piece is called “BLACK THOUGHTS”

“UNTITLED EXPRESSION”

THIS IS AN ABSTRACT PIECE I HAVE RECENTLY PAINTED IN ACRYLIC. I THINK THIS PIECE IS WHAT I WOULD CALL A PURE EXPRESSION AT ITS TRUEST FORM, NOTHING CALCULATED ACCEPT FOR THE ATTEMPT TO ACHIEVE AND REALIZING ONE HAS ALREADY DONE SO. ENJOY THIS PIECE AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. IT CURRENTLY REMAINS UNTITLED. THE PIECE IS 17X14 ON MIXED MEDIA.

“ON THE HIGHLINE”

THIS NEW VISUAL COLLABORATION COMES WITH GREAT JOY AND IN MY OPINION OF TERRYS MODELING, GREAT SKILL. WE SHOT THIS PHOTO SHOOT RIGHT HERE IN NEW YORK CITY AT THE HIGH LINE AROUND THE CHELSEA AREA. TERRY HAS A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT LOOKS IN THIS PHOTO SHOOT AND I THINK HER CHOICE OF CLOTHING WAS PRECISE WITH THE TIMES AND THE WEATHER. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK I’M SURE ME AND HER WILL BE COLLABORATING AGAIN SOON. PHOTOS WERE SHOT WITH A CANON T3I.

THIS GUY IS THE DEFINITION OF JUST HOW POWERFUL GREED AND MONEY CAN BE. HE NOW HAS HIS OWN WING AT THE MET THAT THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON FOR A COUPL;E OF YEARS.

HOPE YOU ENJOY AND CHECK OUT THE NEW DAVID KOCH WING AT THE MET.

“AUTUMN LEAVES”

THIS ABSTRACT PIECE I WANTED TO CONCENTRATE ON TONES PROGRESSING, THE FALL FOR ME BRINGS A CERTAIN PROGRESSION AND FORWARD THINKING AND I THINK THESE ARE THE COLORS IM ATTRACTED TO AS WELL. THE FALL BRINGS THE LEAVES AND BRINGS CHANGE WHETHER YOU WANT TO DEAL WITH IT OR NOT. THE TITLE COMES FROM A MILES DAVIS TRACK OFF OF THE MILES IN BERLIN ALBUM  THAT I WAS LISTENING TO WHILE COMPLETING THIS PAINTING. ITS MEANT TO BE PERCEIVED HOWEVER YOU SEE FIT. THE PIECE WAS COMPLETED WITH ACRYLIC PAINT AND SOME PASTELS ON MIXED MEDIA. THE MEASUREMENTS ARE 17X14.

“WHOS GONNA SAVE MY SOUL NOW”

I FOUND MYSELF IN A BAD PLACE RECENTLY, FULL OF ANGER AND RAGE. FEELING LIKE THE COLLAR AROUND MY NECK WAS GETTING TIGHTER AND TIGHTER. I FELT LIKE A FAILURE, A LOSER, LIKE THE POWERS THAT BE WERE CURSING ME FOR SOME REASON. I NEEDED TO RELEASE TENSION, TO EXPRESS. TO PUT MY RAGE TO SOME GOOD USE. REALLY TO INDULGE IN SOME CREATIVE THERAPY, THIS IS THE END RESULT. I CALL IT

“Masters Projects Gallery”

THIS POST COMES AS THE BEGINNING OF ME DOCUMENTING ART EXHIBITIONS I ATTEND HERE FREQUENTLY IN NYC. ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO DO BESIDES CREATE ART IS TO GO SEE IT, BEFOR I EVER HAD THE COURAGE TO TRY MY HAND AT CREATING MYSELF I WOULD SPEND MY TIME ANY TIME I HAD GOING TO SEE ART, GOING TO SEARCH FOR INSPIRATION WHEREVER I COULD. JUST SPENDING DAYS AND DAYS GOING TO GALLERIES AND MUSEUMS. I TRY TO KEEP AN OPEN MIND AND CHECK OUT ANYTHING THAT SPARKS MY INTEREST. THESE VISUALS ARE PART OF A GROUP SHOW TO START OFF THE NEW SEASON OF ART. YOU CAN CHECK OUT THE REST OF THE SHOW AT THE MASTERS GALLERY IN BROOKLYN ON 111 FRONT ST.
