Booth H126

Welcome to my room. The work displayed here, with one exception, was created within the past two years. Most of my work is informed by my experiences traveling around the world from New York City jazz venues, to Soweto, South Africa, to the center of a hurricane on the North Atlantic Ocean and many places in between. The work is optimistic and bright for the most part, though in some cases it depicts people living in very impoverished conditions. Music, particularly jazz, is central to my work. It is always on providing the fertile ground for my creative process. In some cases, it is depicted directly in my impressions of various jazz artists, while in the abstract pieces, jazz is imbued within the work in a perhaps less obvious, but no less direct way.

The display is loosely divided into three overall categories: figurative (life) paintings, abstract impressions, and non-figurative work. Included within the categories is a series of five paintings depicting my impressions of people I encountered in South Africa, and a series of four paintings of jazz musicians. I work primarily in oils and acrylic on canvas or wood. Some of my paintings are deeply textured due to mixed media and a good deal of palette knife use and a thick application of gesso as a foundation. If you look closely the texture is visible in this 2-diemensional digital format.
Though I took an occasional art course in college, the High School of Music and Art “The Castle” on the hill in Harlem, NY was where my talents were honed not only by the faculty, but by the many incredibly talented classmates who taught, inspired, and challenged me.

I have shown my work at the Provincetown Museum of Art, Provincetown, MA and at the Carver Bank in Harlem, NY and virtually at the Blue Door Art Center, Riverdale NY. I am grateful to be able to present at the HFAS. Please enjoy the display.
