Me in front of a painting I did on my studio wall sometime in the early 2000's and one of my last paintings completed in San Francisco sometime in the mid 90's. The figure was a untitled and nondescript but it's clear from the posture where it came from.
I am really pleased how the paintings paired up with Alex Corno's sculptures at Valley House Gallery. Especially Proving Ground and it's companion, Traccia, 2016.
Inspired by one of my favorite works of art, Die Nacht, by Max Beckman.
I am happy to show Field Guide in my show, Day Shift, at Valley House Gallery. It's a fine example of how my work has been impacted by the move to Long Island.
It has been seven long years since my last show with Kenise Barnes Fine Art. Back Home represent the first batch of work to emerge form the new studio. I used to think I could make my work anywhere. Turns out, not so much.
I am eager to stretch my legs a bit with the emergence of Spring.

The paintings are advancing during these mild Fall days. Tucker and Rueben have joined us again today to keep Juno company. They seem to enjoy the studio visits.
I am thrilled to be included in Julie Karabenick's curatorial project, Geoform. It is a fantastic collection of painters.
Geoform is an online scholarly resource and curatorial project whose focus is the use of geometric form and structure in contemporary abstract art being made by artists from around the world.
Geoform explores, documents and celebrates the rich diversity of style and aesthetic intent that characterizes this broad vein of contemporary non-objective abstraction. Such diversity attests to the profound resonance that geometric form and structure have had for people across time and place.

I am so please to be showing with Valley House Gallery at 2013 Dallas Art Fair. This is such a quality fair. My only wish is that I could be there this year to see it.
Kenise Barnes Fine Art is moving to a new and expanded location. I am so pleased to be a part of the inaugural exhibition, Abstract Thinking, opening Saturday, April 13, 6:30 - 8pm. I am showing with three wonderful artists, Katia Santibanez, Yolanda Sanchez, and Josette Urso.
I had a great visit with the folks from Art This Week this past summer. We talked about the new painting process I am using to begin my pieces and its relationship to my prints. You can see in the video the painting Peal, in a very early stage. Thanks so much to Art This Week, Richard Serrano, and my interviewer LauraLee Brott.
