Helper One Show at Finch Lane Gallery

I recently participated in a show at the Finch Lane Gallery. The show centers around Paul Davis, Dave Dornan, John Erickson, and Tony Smith and what they did at the U of U and in Helper, Utah. The show is filled with amazing paintings and will be hanging until the end of February. If you are into art I'd highly recommend stopping in.  

This is the piece I hung, The Moment After Impact, 40"x 40", oil on canvas.

Going Forth

Paintings are similar to mirrors, they reflect back more about us than we realize. Our reactions often expose things about us that we do not expect.

Going Forth for me is a painting about hope, clinging to the one light on the horizon and moving toward it. Others have told me it expresses the exact opposite, or at least until they read the title.

Abandoning Reason

Abandoning Reason, oil on canvas, 36"x 48"

I started these sketches the night of Brexit. I was pretty shocked at what had happened and how a nation made a decision without knowing what it meant. The news of them googling "What is Brexit" after having voted for it, shocked me. 

So I started thinking that we often make decisions without realizing the consequences. Some are small and meaningless while some are gigantic and horrific. I started thinking that three British bobbies jumping in the harbor was a funny symbol of reason being abandoned. The positive is that while a little cheeky, these men will dry off and learn from their mistakes and hopefully we as a society can do the same. It is dripping in irony of the super logical jumping fully clothed into the water. Almost as though Sherlock Holmes himself had lost his mind.

I was recently on the news after painting a piece for my buddy's wife. It was an emotional experience painting a little angel who recently passed away. This family is stronger than any of us realize.

Mine Eyes Have Seen, 12"x 12", oil on panel

Every spring I watch Ken Burn's series on the Civil War. It is one of the best documentary series I have ever seen. I love all the old photos they share. This little face has haunted me for a while now, so I had to paint him. I have wondered what his eyes witnessed as our nation went to war with itself.
