My good friend Jason Stopa had the opportunity to interview the exceptional painter Mamma Andersson for NY Arts Magazine recently and the result is a fascinating insight into her work and process. One particular part of the interview stuck with me, in which Andersson says,

"It is just daily life that interests me, all those days that just go on. It is in them that great events take place, right in front of us, but we hardly notice them. At its best, we understand afterwards what happened. It applies to love, degradation, persecution, actually everything. Suddenly, it is summer and we never noticed that spring passed."

New Work, News

Artopia went well - I exhibited a dozen new or never-before-shown works for a little over three hours. It was a little crazy, but overall -a good motivation to get new works finished. Here's a few:

“Untitled”, Acrylic on Canvas, 16x20”
“Somewhere when your heart glowed the hope", Acrylic on Canvas, 18x24"
"Gathering Light",16x20", Acrylic on Canvas
"Attic Ghost”, Acrylic on Canvas, 16x20”
And a (cropped) view of the display. I'll be back to posting fairly regularly now - lots to share. Thanks for your patience.

You got me

Thanks for the love, I'll return to posting here after my next show. For the next couple weeks I need to focus on painting. You can see my work at the upcoming Artopia on Saturday, February 18.

If all goes according to my very fuzzy plan, there should be half a dozen new small works at the show. These are pretty abstract, and quite a departure (or detour?) for my work. Looking forward to sharing them with you. Thanks for the support everyone.
