I'm very excited that my new series, Skyscapes, will be on exhibit at Collector Art Shop starting October 2, 2012. Collector is a great gallery in Elmwood (2950 College Avenue, at Ashby) specializing in affordable, original art.
This series of celestial paintings had a varied set of inspirations: watching for falling stars during meteor showers, a hand-glazed sake cup we found in Kyoto, and watching far too many episodes of Star Trek as a child. Here's the sake cup that began my journey in this direction:
Working on this series has been a very meditative process for me. The paintings aren't intended to faithfully represent the galaxies, but instead, to remind us of the emotions we feel when looking up into the night sky.
Collector is having an artists' reception Friday, October 12, from 6-8 pm. Join me and the other exhibiting artists!
