Overlapping Memories

By |February 7th, 2012|Uncategorized|


I'll be exhibiting six new prints in Overlapping Memories which opens 2.10.12 at SPACE in Pittsburgh and 2.25.12 at Quart Jove in Valencia, Spain. The exhibit co-curated by Carolina Loyola-Garcia, Ima Pico and Christina Ghetti  explores concepts of memory & introspection through the contemporary use of collage and digital media.
Over the past month I developed a new series of images based on childhood memories & associations with pop culture images, icons and historic events of the 1970′s.

Naked in the Jungle, 2012
Overlapping Memories is an art exchange between artists based in Spain and U.S.A working with contemporary collage as a medium and dealing with themes of memory and retrospection.

Sacheen Littlefeather

By |June 23rd, 2011|Uncategorized|

Every June Pittsburgh's Mattress Factory Museum holds it's annual fundraiser in the form of an Urban Garden
Party, and each year there is a different theme to the event. The 2011 version celebrated From Hollywood to Paradise
An unique part of the event each year is an auction of original artwork based on a theme related object that the museum has chosen for each artist to work with.  Here's a collection of my art from some other garden parties. 


This year each artist was given a 12" plastic replica of the Oscar. I must have spent a week wondering what to do with
that object until, I decided to boycott it all together in favor of a drawing of Sacheen Littlefeather. 


Sacheen Littlefeather is a Native American activist who donned Apache dress and presented a speech on behalf of actor Marlon Brando, for his performance in The Godfather, when he boycotted the 45th Academy Awards ceremony on March 27, 1973, in protest of the treatment of Native Americans by the film industry.


I have created a very limited edition of 10, each print signed, numbered and printed with archival inks on 13" x 19" semi-matt archival paper.
