Camouflage is one of a few of my recent paintings that are about identity - perception of self and how one is perceived and such things. I am just starting to put this theme to words. I'll have to explain my use of totems and getting tangled in patterns when I get to where I can wrap my brain around it and wax poetic.
Here is what I love about going to art shows: talking art smack. With artists and art appreciators (love those). When I am showing my own work I enjoy hearing what people think about my art and what it says to them, I also enjoy "educating" people on the meanings and thinkings behind my paintings. Even better, I love getting to talk to other artists about their art. I was in good company in Park City last weekend as part of a group show at the Meyer Gallery. I had wonderful conversations with Ray Bonilla, Justin and Sunny Taylor, Brian Kershisnik, and others. If you happen to be in Park City, stop in Meyer Gallery for a look-see. It is a brilliant show and a wonderful gallery. Lots of good art. I'm trying to underplay my excitement by avoiding exclamations. !!!
