I was awarded a space grant through the Chashama non profit organization to mount an exhibition at One Brooklyn Bridge Park featuring 4 of the multi paneled portrait painting installations I did while in at my former studio Dumbo. I am thrilled- I have never exhibited more than one of these installations together at the same time.
I am delighted to present a decade survey of my painting installations. For 11 years I had a painting studio in the Dumbo neighborhood. Focusing on portraiture I was inspired in part by the cross roads of the world atmosphere of this vibrant neighborhood. I make paintings and installations referencing found vernacular photos--I explore the analog era of collecting and treasuring photographs-revealing their emotional and cultural significance.
