The Fir/The Green

the_fir_the_green.jpg

The Fir / The Green opens this coming Friday, November 3rd with over 20 new works at Stranger Factory gallery in Albuquerque, NM!

The work in this show encompasses a period in which I began to recognize how much memory feels inherited, how much instinct is working within the confines of practiced behavior. 
There are hidden aspects of selves, ancestral whispers in the background while the body moves carefully to navigate the alien newness of each passing year. 
I thought of where we go to in sleep & the projection of self. What we share with others under the influence of varying consciousnesses. It is also about two complimentary halves combining and the necessity of nurturing. 

My work list in my sketchbook for this show: primitive instincts, nutrition, what it means to be, projection of self into objects, sensitivity, the past and how it hinders the present, perception of age, time as a loop, as a string, microscopic creatures controlling the body, maps, layers, dimensions, a past that believes it was the future, a version of dreaming, ancestral memory

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Communicating with the Weather

Telepathy by Amy Earles

Telepathy by Amy Earles

I've been busy working toward my Stranger Factory show opening in November. Extra time for little, meandering sketches has been extremely limited. So I had no plan to make any Little Witches this year for Halloween. Besides, I might be growing up a little.

Then I had the strongest feeling to make one but this one isn't little at all. I couldn't make it a loose little sketch, it came to life as something more important to me and on bigger paper. But it's still a painting with a Halloween spirit. Playing on the theme of changing weather and atmosphere of awareness in the 10th month of the year. 

I made a print, a little larger than usual. And maybe later, if anyone requests it seriously, I'll make an even larger one. You can find the new print & more of my flawed little bats back in stock in my shop now.  

I'll be back soon with news of my upcoming show!  

(Yes, I've named things Telepathy before and I'll do it again)

Spring Print Sale!

Lately, I've been framing and hanging up some of the art I've been collecting for the last few years. It's such a nice feeling to add new (old) things to the walls. Inspired by hanging all of these bits of art up around the house, I decided to have a spring print sale in case you're feeling the same way too.

So all prints in both of my shops are 20% off until May 31st!
I'll be retiring a handful of prints at the end of summer so if there's something you've had your eye on for a while, now might be a good time to grab it.

No code necessary here in my Pushed Under shop. 
But if you'd rather shop my Etsy store, you can use the code SPRINGCLEANING at checkout.

You'll also find a few more flawed pins listed and a set of lightly used Egg tempera paints that need a good home.

Moments in Monochrome is opening this coming Saturday (the 25th)! Two of my paintings will be part of this show which is made up of some really excellent artists. If you happen to be in Portland, please stop by and check it out!
To be included on the show preview that will be sent out this coming Friday, please contact Nucleus Portland to be added to the list!
