I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone that has supported my art this past year. With much appreciation for you I’ve been able to continue to explore and grow as an artist. Throughout the year I’ve been able to share many new ideas and get out there to meet so many great people. I very much look forward to continued growth and to share more thoughts with you in 2013. A huge thank you to everyone that visited my shop every first of the month to offer overwhelming support and encouraging compliments. Though my monthly art shop (the first of) has been successful and provided greatly toward my continuation as an artist, it has cut down the time I’ve been able to focus on bigger ideas. In 2013 I have decided to work a little different and will not be making my art available on a monthly basis on thefirstof.com. I aim to create larger paintings and cohesive bodies of art, working with various galleries while also looking into bigger ideas with the dimensional work as well as various other projects in mind. In the coming year I will most likely make some of my art available through my shop on occasion, but as I do so I will be certain to send you any information in advance.
I am currently focused on a solo exhibition coming up on February 1st at Stranger Factory in Albuquerque, NM. I will be sharing the gallery with the solos of DrilOne and Leecifer. I have titled this show Foretell. The ideas are all based on visions that can’t be seen by living human eyes. The paintings and ideas will portray our planet after we humans no longer live, but only remnants of us exist. I question what will grow from us and around us. New creatures breath life into what we were and grow from what we left. I will offer a glimpse of what’s to come through the foretelling eyes of afterlife.
Again, thanks so much to all those that have given such great support.
