This freehand mandala was produced specifically for the Art for AIDS auction.

As with most of my work, it began with random—almost accidental strokes on paper.

This Dada-like approach is an essential part of my process, keeping me from working too formally or stiffly, and making the pieces less about me “the artist”.

To that end, my mandalas and other works have portions that are intentionally off centered and unbalanced.  In this way, the compositions create harmony with a pinch of chaos, helping to bring the pieces to life.

My typical tools are fine art markers, high quality paper, and good lighting.  A self-taught artist, in addition to drawing, I also enjoy painting with ink, creating assemblages, sculpture, and etching in stone, glass, and several other media.

Public Art Collaboration at DADA

It seems a crew has formed from February’s heart collaboration!  Our new project takes us to DADA bar, thanks to video artist Steve Pi.  He invited us to collaborate on a Salvador Dali mural, upon which he will project video adaptations of various themes, including Dali paintings and his own unique sequences.  

The mural is part of a larger show that opens Tuesday, April 24 at DADA, featuring killer oil paintings by Larry Spenler and Juan Manuel.

Dada bar launches new local-artist shows each month — these are some of the strongest bodies of work you’ll ever see, in a space that exerts enormous energy into putting original contemporary art in front of a smart audience.  Think about it...the bar is called DADA, so you're going to get some unconventional, yet seriously world class artwork flowing across the bar's walls.  

It’s also one hell of a cool joint — a great place to hang out and see some art.

Check them out!
