The Bipolar Scale of Artistic Angst

 This is the best idea I've ever had, I am unstoppable. There is no limit to what I can accomplish. Get out of my way, I have important things to do. I'm feeling fortunate for my situation. Things could be better. Things aren't that bad. I have no reason to complain. Life is really hard sometimes. Nothing I do is any good. Everyone else is better than me. There is no hope for my future.

I recently did a short interview for the "Best YouTube Videos" blog. Apparently, I am a 'rising YouTube personality'!

Sublime Monotony

My work is included in this upcoming show:

Sublime Monotony
May 2-June 2, 2013
Opening Friday May 3, 5-8pm

Ãarhus Gallery
50 Main Street
Belfast, ME 04915

With the monotonous winter having continued on, and on, the piles of snow and frozen ground having withered down to mud and then igniting into spring, Åarhus Gallery thought it would be appropriate to have some fun with what is at times a monotonous if not paradoxical condition, this human condition with it’s contradictions of the mundane: everyday we eat, drink, sleep… our hearts beat continuously all day, everyday; the near definition of monotony being the lifeblood of our very existence. The tides ebb and flow tirelessly, apparently from an infinite horizon. Everyday the sun goes down and then, lo and behold, everyday the sun comes up. And if we listen, we may find our noble oxymoron, an altogether separate, deafening silence becomes our virtual reality. That which at first seems extinguished, wearisome, routine, repetitive, becomes singularly new, becomes beauty, becomes the flame. In a paradoxical world, our world, neither is either, without each other… and together they reveal a divine truth: The Sublime Monotony.

The show will feature the works of Marcie Jan Bronstein, Gabriella D’Italia, Clint Fulkerson, J. T. Gibson, Stew Henderson, Kevin Johnson, Mark Kelly, Marc Leavitt, Karen MacDonald, Richard Mann, Wesley Reddick, Willy Reddick and Kate Russo.

Exploring Color

Here is a series of four untitled 15" x 11" acrylic paintings done on paper. These pieces were my reintroduction to the process of painting after considering the medium irrelevant to me for many years. I decided that I wanted to please the rods AND the cones in my eyeballs. Working atop a geometric sketch, I was mostly concerned with mixing colors from a limited palette and putting them next to each other in various combinations and working intuitively in a continuous feedback loop of painting and repainting until each image settled into a state of equilibrium.

These are a test to see if I really want to paint, and I do. From here on I will be painting larger and on canvas, which I refer to dorkily as the "fabric of space-time".
