Malibu Museum Exhibit

Malibu Museum Exhibit art
Here are some photos from my latest art exhibit at the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art in Malibu, California!! Expanding on last year’s Iceland Abstracted painting series, this year I wanted to bring my paintings back to canvas. Translating my ideas into paint was surprising simpler than I anticipated. Voilà! My paintings Milk Cocoon, Steam Castles, and Cascade were all unveiled for the first time at the show, fresh off the easel! Yes, I was painting way too late into the night than preferred to get everything ready for the show. And yes, not all the paintings were dry in time either. (yikes!) But isn’t that the beauty of painting? I say yes.

This year I’m exhibiting 15 watercolor paintings along with the poems they were based on. The paintings were chosen from a collection of about 35 watercolors from my Iceland Abstracted series which encompasses poetry and painting. The work was done mostly in the field in moleskine journals—on location in Iceland. If you have the chance, come on out to the museum!

Here’s an excerpt about me from the artist’s catalog that was published for the exhibition:

“Since my art is heavily influenced by the
destinations I’ve traveled to, my paintings are
filled with cultural references that are combined
to form a rich visual language. Additionally,
inspired by the years I spent in Japan, my compositions and line
work reflect the influence of ukiyo-e, while conceptually exploring the
relationship between unique distinctions and the ordinary.”

I hope to see you at the museum!
