Introducing my new website!


I have changed my website. Actually, there are two:

Spanish version here:

I am in the process of preparing lots of new work for a restaurant installation, an upcoming exhibition, and competitions in Mallorca. So, keep in touch of new work appearing regularly.

Very soon I will be launching my on-line store at Stay tuned.

Set of Six Dailies

Here is a continuation of Series 2 of the daily paintings I am currently creating. Now I will begin a transition in the color scheme...stay tuned.

looking at the individual pieces I like to get lost in the intricate little microcosms. As a set or 4, 6 or more squares, they have a very different feel: more chaotic, like a locomotive engine or watch mechanics in motion. Eager to select some and re-interpret on a much larger scale.

I feel like I am back in art school, playing with so much Cubism! Gotta admit, 'passage' is so fun...

New Piece, details

These shots give a truer sense of the actual color and detail of "La vida pseudonómada".

You can see how the written stories are integrated. Some folks were hesitant to share their stories, because they didn't want their privacy compromised.

Well, as you can see, it's just between you and me ;) you'd have to be a forensic specialist to decode this story.

La Vida Pseudonómada/The Pseudo-nomadic Life

La vida pseudonómada (The Pseudo-nomadic Life)

Completed September 1, 2009
35.5 X 47 inches (90 X 120 cm)
Mixed media on wood (rusted metal, collage, acrylic)

I started this piece ages ago and have finally pulled it together. It is the first piece that utilizes some of the many Moving Stories I have collected over the last 2 months. Thank you, Jose for your contribution. The original building structure is one in Inca, Mallorca. The junk was collected on the streets of Muro and the wall paper is from the site of a renovation in Sa Pobla.

I am entering this piece today in a competition at a gallery I have been salivating over; the exhibition space is a wonderfully restored historic estate and well-suited to my work. Just being in the group show would be great, but the first prize of a solo exhibit is going to be even better! Wish me luck.
