"Romance of Canada" solo show

I am pleased to announce that my new solo show, "Romance of Canada", opens at the Antonio Colombo Gallery in Milan, Italy on March 26th.  The show will run until May 23rd.

After taking about a year off from personal painting, this work represents some of my most detailed and involved pieces to date.  Oils, gouache and acrylics make up this reimagining of my native land, distorting cliches as well as creating new mythology.  

A partial preview of the show is posted below.  For a complete show preview and information, please contact the gallery:

"MEAN GIRLS CLUB" Installation opens July 3rd

I have always wanted the chance to create a risograph comic book.  To compose some weird music.  To shoot a short film.  To build a small structure.  To design wallpaper.  To make some silk screens.  To do some large typography paintings.

Well, thanks to the Wieden + Kennedy Gallery in Portland, OR, I am able to explore all of these things for my upcoming "MEAN GIRLS CLUB" art installation, which opens on July 3rd.  Taking a break from my usual painting content, the show delves into the black hearts of the Mean Girls, bringing them to life via all of the above media and techniques.

In addition to the installation portion, I will be releasing six new small-run giclee prints, in addition to the new comic book, silk screens, and various signed books.

 

I will be posting images and teasers on Instagram, but for now, here is the basic info:
