Upcoming Brooklyn Show: Demi-Urge

Mary Judge stopped by during the Thanksgiving weekend to choose artworks for my December show at her gallery, Schema Projects, in Bushwick.



One of the works she chose is one I've wanted to show for years...and now I'll be able to do so: The Cloud of Unknowing.

























If you're in New York either of these weekends, please stop by.
I'd love to see you there.

Nothing But Good


Nothing But Good is a blog where invited artists show that they stand in a tradition by expressing their commitment to an inspiring, no longer living predecessor. Nothing But Good Should Be Said Of The Dead. A blog by Michael de Kok, René Korten and Reinoud van Vught.
I've found this site interesting and revealing, so I was very pleased when asked to participate.
See my offering at Ward Schumaker / Mbuti Drawings
