This month I have work up at MSJC. The curator Joe Posadas and Professor Eileen Doktorski have been great to work with and I've been out a few times to talk to classes about the work and what led up to it. Professor Josh Reed brought me to their attention and made the whole thing happen. It's a great space in a cool community college set in the farms and foothills near Mt San Jacinto. The landscape just knocks me out around there.
The image here is of a young artist documenting my work for further study at a later time. Her name is Chloe and she has strong opinions about art.
This show combines work from a few different bodies of thought and I'm surprised to see that they play together pretty well. The last few years have been a real awakening for me regarding the processes of drawing and painting. It has been so rewarding to re-examine my assumptions and take on my weaknesses in the community to other hard working artists. My faculty and friends have been so supportive and generous... I'm going to miss them.
But watch this space as the countdown to my show in May continues. There will be a lot going on and I'll share previews of the other great artists showing this Spring, some of the work going on in my studio and the occasional look at best practices for the studio or art classroom. Please drop me a note or leave a comment/question.
