Simultaneous Passage at the Southwest School of Art, San Antonio

Tagia, Detail, Oil Glazes on Steel, 24″ x 32″, 2013

I am busy preparing for my solo show, Simultaneous Passage, at the Southwest School of Art in July. The exhibition will be on view from July 18th to August 23rd. I had posted some earlier stages of this piece, “Tagia” about 3 posts back. It is built up of many layers of rust, oil and glaze mediums that are brushed on, applied by hand, wiped, scraped, sanded, smeared and gouged. The show will consist of a variety of paintings drawings and prints.

Statement:
Blending scapes of land and sea, Simultaneous Passage, also blurs the lines of process, media, and viewing. The imagery triggers a memory or creates responses to birth a new one. The stories told depict a interpretation of the past. These individual moments take place within our collective memory, whether you are an observer or a creator, making us all somehow participants of the story. Art allows the viewer to become creator using their mind as an extension of the piece viewed. The events live in multiple time frames as they transition their own lifespan of creation, experience and subsequently, memory.
