I would be forever grateful if everyone cast a vote (once a day even!) for my piece ‘Tongues 1‘, and 3 others I’ve submitted to the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series. Not only is it a great opportunity to share my work, but the prizes include a small group of winners to exhibit and attend the Scope Miami show with the grand winner going on to NYC for a solo show. There’s some strong competition, but I think I have a good shot. Thank you!!!

Spring Tongues Art Showing

Posted in Paintings, Spring Studies, Tongues Series, Typographic with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 27, 2014 by Brian

I’m showing some of my paintings starting this Friday, August 29th, 7pm, (and ongoing dates) at Black Sky Brewing near the Santa Fe Arts District in Denver. Please join me in this opportunity to see my work in a unique venue with expertly crafted local beer and food.

16×20, acrylic on canvas, 2012; 2014

Spring Tongues is two separate series of paintings completed years apart.

The first series is Tongues, a narrative about lost languages, extinct cultures, diaspora. I often have structure and graphic design in my work for contrast, and used illegible calligraphic elements to portray the theme in these pieces.

The second series, Spring Studies, is the most recent of my paintings and is loosely based on renewal and spring, in technique only. They were created on repurposed canvases with different processes than I usually work from — palette knife, no sketch, set color range.

Bottom Bracket T-shirt

Shirt design for Bottom Bracket, a fast, loud hardcore punk band from Colorado. The design is a mashup of a few different styles, incorporating old-school black-and-white punk graphics and bicycling themes presented with a Latino sugar skull syle decoration. This one was super fun – can’t wait to see it printed!

Hat

Hat_24x30_2013

Forgot to post this one, Hat, from 2013. 24×30, acrylic on wood. A mixup of styles, but I wanted to tinker with earthtones and feature a subject with a large, surreal hat with motion.

Spring Studies 2014

Spring Studies, acrylic on canvas, 18×24. After digging through my art storage, I found a lot of crap damaged, unfinished, and uninspired. So, I cranked out 3 new ones to usher in the new season, new attitude, and new energy. My parameters – no sketch, no typography, and mainly a palette knife, all different than how I usually work. Hope you dig ‘em.
