I just returned from helping hang the new AVAA members show.  It is going to be great!  There are so many wonderful pieces in this show, and the space—Studio2—is one of my favorites in Austin.  There are many very nice representational works, a wide variety of beautiful abstract pieces, and quite a few sculptures.

I’m showing one of my favorite recent paintings, and I love where they have it hung!

The opening is this Saturday, July 17th, from 6:30pm – 8:30pm.  The location is 1700 S. Lamar, Suite 318, in the South Lamar Business Park.  The show runs through August 7th.

Check the Studio2 website or the AVAA website for more information.

Through the interplay and juxtaposition of the micro with the macro, I try to depict on canvas what nature could do in the world, but hasn’t gotten around to yet. There are always new combinations, and with them, new opportunities for capturing the kind of emergent qualities that animate the world; new ways of discovering parts whose sum creates a greater whole.

This wealth of possibilites lies in the inescapable fractal nature of the physical world: tiny crystals under a microscope resemble mountain ranges; neurons mirror nebulae; zoosphores echo supernovae.
