Snowed in

We got one of the top 5 worst blizzards on record here in Minneapolis so I decided not to leave the house for a couple of days.   Instead, I took pictures of reflections that looked like other things around the apartment.

Moving the studio

Right now I'm in the middle of moving my studio out of my apartment.  So I'm becoming nostalgic.

Check me out in New American Paintings!

My photos of the magazine are terrible but you get the idea.  Also in this issue is my friend and fellow Minneapolis artist Kirstin Peterson.

Another painting

This is a painting that I finished last week.  I love all of the imperfections.

Thought of the day

"Many of the most challenging painters working today—Dana Schutz, Daniel Dove, Lisa Sanditz, and Tom McGrath, for example—are disparately engaged with one central (albeit multifaceted) question: What is at stake in negating intelligible mimetic imagery with passages of pure facture and, inversely, in undermining the autonomy of materials and process with overt images? And how can mining this dialectic through the act of painting help illuminate and analyze the human and material conditions of contemporary life? " -Christopher Bedford in Art Forum

These are detail shots of a painting I started last week.  The windows on this building took some planning since it was a process of painting, then covering with tape, and then repeating. So I had no idea what it really looked like until all of the tape is taken off.  I find it more exciting that way and the process allows for more happy accidents. 

I'm going to be published!

I was chosen from over 1000 applicants to be part of the catalog New American Paintings.  I spent the last two weeks trying to make sure everything was ready for it.  Look for me in issue #89.
