I feel like I've never worked so hard for an opportunity as I did for this one. I am very grateful to be back at ESXLA  for a six-month role as community artist in residence (CAIR). This organization is run by the most supportive people, director Jason Ramos and director emeritus Michelle Carla Handel. I'm joining fellow CAIR Stacy Wendt who has been sailing the ship for the last few months. 

During my residency, I will be helping with the organization's daily operations, getting back in touch with the LA arts community, and making new works. I'm ready...

After holing up in my studio over the summer, I'm bringing out the new work for a solo show at 2731 Prospect Gallery . Big thank you to gallery director Lauren Davies for her enormous support.

The title of the show, Flickering Sky, refers to that unease we feel as the storm approaches, a sense of not knowing, moments of becoming that sometimes never arrive.

My time at Headlands was unforgettable and transformative for me and my practice. I met the most amazing people including the Headlands staff and resident artists, writers and musicians. The studio space was more than I ever could have dreamed of and the surrounding landscapes never ceased to leave me in awe.

I'm honored to be included in the exhibition Touch: Between Image and Surface. The show is curated by University of Akron Professor of Painting Matthew Kolodjiez.

February 29 - March 18, 2016
Myers School of Art Gallery
University of Akron

Works by Eric Neff, Dragana Crnjak, Tom Berdin, Martin Ball, Andrea Joki, Laura Lisbon, Dustin London, Jered Sprecher and Amy Yoes

Kolodjiez writes, "The work in this exhibition explores both the visual and haptic senses. Painting today is in a dialogue with a digital future and an analog history. A sense of touch is central to the practice of these artists. Movement, color, texture, and absence are all ways that painting visually and tactilely engages the processing of information in time, material, and space. The sense of touch is integral to orienting oneself and directing action."
