I created some circular pieces back in 2014 for a group endeavor I participated in on Governor's Island, and I was just thinking earlier this year how interesting it would be to create some more paintings on circular supports. Coincidentally (are there really any coincidences in the universe?), shortly thereafter, my friend Jonathan Blum approached me about his idea for a Circle Show.
So it is happening! It will be at Shapeshifter Lab, 18 Whitwell Place, Brooklyn, New York. The show opens Friday, November 9, 6:30pm to 12 midnight and the artwork will be up through January 11.
My pieces, which I am titling "Dharmadhatu" (So, "Dharmadhatu 1" is above, and "Dharmadhatu 2" below) were just created a few weeks ago. They are each mixed media (mainly oil) on canvas, 20" diameter. It was great pleasure creating these abstract pieces. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed making them. And, as always, paintings such as these are always more interesting in person than on the internet. So if you are in town, stop by on November 9 and check out the art!
