"Commissure Behavior"

The morning will bring war ,
If you are unsure lay your eyes to rest,
Others will come and fight the good fight,
Their sore minds and broad ears will catch fast moving hands
rhythmically colliding and crashing together
in a play called "skin meet skin".
The night will bring cowards unsure whether to believe in picture frames or light bulbs,
So they'll gather both in the dawn,
and wonder if they're getting closer to the morning or just further from the night.

Juxtapoz 15th Anniversary Auction

I recently had the honor of being invited to show at the Juxtapoz 15th Anniversary Auction!
 Above is the show flyer that will also be posted in this months issue of Juxtapoz along with all other 140+ participants!  Huge honor to be invited and am so glad I had the opportunity to be involved! Below is a quick write up explaining the event written by Andrew Hosner! 

This year, 2009, Juxtapoz is celebrating their 15th Anniversary. To help celebrate, Juxtapoz decided to put together a huge group show and have teamed up with Powerhouse Project in Detroit to help raise money to buy homes in abandoned neighborhoods in order to regenerate one of the symbols of American middle class cities.

To help make this event as big as possible, Juxtapoz reached out to some of their favorite galleries and asked for their help in curating this milestone event.

Artists featured in the auction on behalf of Thinkspace include:
Anthony Clarkson, Dabs Myla, L. Croskey, Cherri Wood, Tran Nguyen, Brett Amory, Erik Siador, Nathan DeYoung, Anthony Pontius, Craig ‘Skibs’ Barker, Sarah Joncas, Dan-ah Kim, Catherine Brooks, Kelly Vivanco, David MacDowell, Ekundayo, Brandi Milne, Tony Philippou, and Joshua Mays.

Besides our gallery, others that helped bring the show together include Shooting Gallery, Copro Gallery, White Walls, Subliminal Projects, Jonathan LeVine, Show & Tell, and Fifty24SF. Nice company to say the least. We are honored to have been asked to help curate this special charitable auction and can’t wait for all to see this amazing collection of work this evening.

Independent of the above galleries, Juxtapoz has also secured works from the likes of Matthew Barney, Kehinde Wiley, Robert Williams, Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Craola, Todd Schorr, David Choe, Todd “Reas” James, WK Interact, Robert Williams, “Big Daddy” Roth, Thomas Campbell, Estevan Oriol, Mister Cartoon, Paul Insect, Jeremy Fish, Sam Flores, Alex Pardee, Saber, David Ellis, Travis Millard, Mel Kadel, Skinner, Haze, San, Dan Witz, D*Face, Andrew Schoultz, Richard Colman, Aaron Horkey, Saelee Oh, Lucy McLauchlan, Adam Wallacavage, AJ Fosik, Ron English, Josh Keyes, Monica Canilao, Shawn Barber, Kenji Hirata, Jay Howell, Vhils, Eine, Jeremyville, Augor, Herbert Baglione, Liz McGrath, Kelsey Brookes, Charles Glaubitz, Dennis McNett and many, many more. A simply STUNNING lineup of artists taking part in this awesome show.

Act 4: Like Exploding (Accepting) Neon (Dreams)

Like the ships built in bottled sand,
Passion assembled promise (piece by piece) in fragile neon tubes,
A promise of more than (or were it greater than?) the sum of its amateur hands,
Tracing careful lines to attract the open eye wide,
I attached skin to color, to expose a liar working for honesty, 
I connected power lines to sleepless nights, to illuminate the anatomy of distraction,
Than I built a glowing human sign (so I could sleep next to a glowing human), that reads "Look what I've built, it tries so beautifully".

I am so sorry I have been such a slacker on keeping things updated! I have been really busy actually and have had a lot of things I should have been posting, but between working, painting and trying to sleep I've been having some difficulty finding that balance... But I do intend to make up for it, starting now! 

I recently had my show entitled "Windows & Mirrors" with Thinkspace gallery and it was more than I could have ever hoped for!! I want to thank everyone for coming out and making this night nothing short of a dream come true! Im going to be sure to post some pics of the show soon!

Also more dream come true stuff- I did an interview and a process post with recently and here are the links for those!

I also did a live painting at the Beyond Eden Art Festival recently which I'll also post pics of soon, had a great time and would love to thank the lovely and supportive Thinkspace Gallery for allowing me to take part in such an amazing event! 

I've also been working really hard on my newest painting titled  Act 4: Like Exploding (Accepting) Neon (Dreams) which will be going to Aqua Miami for Art Basel this December (more info to come) I will also be posting some pics of the piece in the near future with a full photo process and the final work once its done! 

And I was recently selected as this months featured artist by OM records!!! Want to send a HUGE thank you to those guys for allowing me this opportunity! Could NOT be more excited! To see that here is the link:

Lots more on the horizon and in the works so i'll be sure to keep everything posted this time around and hope this post finds everyone doing well!

Act 3: A Solution In Vivid Color

Lend me your skin and i'll mock you in delicate shades of white,
And in the sugar rush that will follow as we assume and I devour,
The full understanding that loved and empty agreement,
That flammable mixture of senses,
That taste of bitter, ginger fingers, candy apple thighs, cherry bone marrow,
All beautifully served with mixed signals and finished with encouraging words,
As we assume and I devour,
That sweetly sickening toxic risk,
That bore connected letters, 
Which grew into words, 
That died as complete sentences when pushed through straight teeth by lonely lungs,
(The friction!) that created a small spark right in the heart of the great candy rooted forest,
Friction than presented the problem and the solution...
The spark/ the fire/ that great forest at night that now burns for all to see in vivid color.

Act 2: A change- A gift

As dark welcomes light and the air readies itself for the sun,
you'll think about those times,
times spent lost in that vast desert of variables,
walking knee deep in the sand with colossal expectations,
honestly attempting to perform magic tricks with lying hands,
desperately searching for the calming oasis found between lying eyes...
Your occupied hands welcome an eye like a half hearted smile welcomes a coward, and you know this burden of weighted thoughts will gladly accept your misgivings as an invitation to dine...
Yes, you will think about those times,
for the last time,
and than you will never look back,
you can never look back...
Instead, you will close your eyes and feel loving feathers and exhausted breath carry you to an endless sky,
you will be sewn together weightless and be reconstructed to glow between vast and influenced rainbows that look down upon the weight and the sand,
and when your eyes reopen they will glimmer and shine of new perspective,
they will shine of feathers and simplicity,
and they will reflect nothing of where you have been.
