I just completed a client commission for a Cycles sculpture. Cycles 2: Science/vertical is a re-imagining of the Cycles series, using stained and lasercut plywood panels to achieve a vertical effect.
Cycles 2: Science/Vertical; 2020; 48"x24"x24"; stain and plywood
Two of my pieces are featured in "faultLine: the County Experience", a group show at the Marin Civic Centers Bartollini Gallery, including works by Deborah Orapollo, Chester Arnold, Richard Shaw, and William Wiley.
"Incantation 2 (diptych)" and "Cycles 1: Religion" will be on display until March 31st. The show was curated by Marin Arts Commissioner Jennifer Wechsler.
I'm showing two pieces at the Great Wave: Art About the Ocean show that just opened at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek.
Meant to be as deeper dive into the Discovery Project, I'm presenting a video documenting the burial of over 100 Buddha heads on the US pacific coast, between Mexico and Canada. I've intercut still images with elemental geometry, meant to be a bridge between culture and nature. See the video HERE.
The second piece is an installation of 104 cast stone Buddha heads arrayed on a blue canvas field of elemental geometry studded with symbols of the 118 elements from the periodic table.
It will be on display until March 22nd
I was asked to participate in the Bolinas Museum's biennale called Hardly Strictly Mini. The show opens November 23rd, just in time for the holidays! I donated "Genesis 9:2", incorporating a mandala of bees and skulls referring to to their threatened status as an "indicator species" for climate change.
Please join the diRosa Center fo Contemporary Art patrons circle for this cocktail 'open-studio' event at our farm property in Sonoma. Contact me for more info.
I opened a two-man show on July 25th with painter Dick Morisawa called "In Flight". It features the six 'Futurity' canvases, a documentary video and the 'Cycles: Science WGA' sculpture, as well as several works by Dick.
The closing party is September 15th; Hope you can attend!
Many Thanks to the over 200 folks who came out to see new work and celebrate early summer!
Ken stokes and Dana Simpson-Stokes commissioned me to create a medium size sculpture for their lovely Sonoma home. "Cycles 2, Science" is 48"x48"x48" and is created with 3/8" corten steel.
Finally. . . a complicated piece I've been puzzling over for many months is DONE! Cycles 2: Science, WGA is fabricated with three materials that harken to their component designs: Wood, for the natural Spira Mirabilis disk; Glass for the Platonic solid Dodecahedron disk; Aluminum, for the Astrolabe navigational tool. Finished size is 48" diameter.
