Blamo Minky Show / #BlamoMinkyShow In Aspen

It has been a whirlwind around my studio lately, I could not be more pleased. There is plenty going on, new shows, new works, exciting times. 

One show I am very excited about is taking place this week at Birds Nest Gallery and the BLKMKT Aspen in the space formally known as Boogies, in downtown Aspen. It is the Blamo Minky Show which will feature 40 or so different artist using the exact same "toy" named Minky for that amazing artist and culture magnets, Blamo Toys, for us to do what we do. All the works will be shown in mass on the 20th of this month. (and dear god will we need a diversion that day)..

So here is the Minky I am showing. Please share your thoughts and spread the word everywhere if you think this is cool.

2017: The Year of Mechanical Engagement

2016 was a very exciting year. I had a number of shows, some group shows and one very successful solo show at The Art Base in Basalt, fundraisers at The Red Brick Arts Center, The ART WAVE in Aspen, CO and Malibu CA. There was art purchased and commissioned by The Bezos Family Foundation, Private collectors in Houston, California and points afar.

The Aspen Art Museum has been very generous to include me in the Curators Crit sessions that invited artist are critiqued by international museum curators, I am very lucky to be able to take part in such a thing. While we are at it, I also was part of a of a private opening with Julian Schnabel discussing his early work. 

The most recent news of 2017 is the opening of Gallery 8k aka G8K in the heart of downtown Aspen, Colorado. Right in the center of Hyman Ave mall, look for the huge Nail Bear.

Also, I am an invited artist for the Blamo Minky Toy Exhibit

New Work On And Off My Bench

It has been a bit to long since my last post, but my hands dirty, the ideas are flow and my message is strong. As anyone who works as an artist is always in flux be it by choice or not, I thrive on it. 




Just finished this sculpture; vintage level, steel, Mylar  


Crosses had to be built

Crosses had to be built

The work is a commentary on faith, reflecting on the construction of a cross, echoed by a chalkboard finish to clearly state that you can write what exactly what you beliefs may be...




And a quick pic of my flight back from Bozeman
