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. 

Nice Pair

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.



Field Guide

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.

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.  


Featured on Geoform

Added on by David Collins.

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.

You can find my Geoform page here.
