I am excited to announce the premier exhibition of my Fish Tales series of watercolor paintings which will be held at the TAC-Tulsa Artist’s Coalition Gallery in downtown Tulsa from August 2-31. The opening reception is on August 2 from 6-9pm during the First Friday Art Event in the Brady Arts District.
Fish tales are stories often characterized by embellishments and omissions. A personal struggle with culturally manufactured myths and the fragility of relationships inspired the creation of this evolving series. The passage of time, duality and facades are persistent themes in my work that frequently surface in this series. My paintings are often layered with a juxtaposition of images that invite interpretation on a personal or universal level. My process with watercolor utilizes one of the oldest painting mediums known to humankind while embracing elements of modern technology. I believe perceptions of control emerging within the spontaneity and fluidity of watercolor embrace the nature of life itself.
Fish Tales will debut new work and showcase individual paintings that were featured previously in international exhibitions of the American and National Watercolor Societies in museums and galleries in NYC and SoCal. Paintings that received awards in Watercolor USA at the Springfield Art Museum and the Georgia Watercolor Society National Exhibition in Atlanta will also be featured.
