What you will find here

… are short blogs about other artists’ work that I find interesting and inspiring- mostly abstract painters like myself. I employ hashtags which can be used to find similar artists or you can search by image.

While I am primarily a painter, I also create installation work in other media (see the drop down under Projects, Other). You can also use the menu to find images of paintings in progress, as well as some perspective on being an Artist with a big “A” after the historical narrative of painting’s progression has been shed.

Bob Hooper

Throughout Bob Hooper’s exhibition of abstract paintings at Regards is a recurring motif: a “circle-square,” to borrow the artist’s term for it. It feels oddly familiar, calling to mind a teardrop, a punctuation mark, a speech bubble, an element of a floor plan, or perhaps even some type of wayfinding marker. And yet, subjected to Hooper’s inversions and manipulations, the circle-square elides any sort of referential comprehension, taking on a life of its own and infusing the show with an unstable, electric energy.

Nanette Carter

Nanette coined the term “scapologist” to describe her practice of creating sea, sky, and landscapes in which she explores political themes and the drama of human nature. These fictional, natural worlds provide the artist with a space to visually reflect on the coexistence of injustice and benevolence in contemporary society.
