I am excited to announce that I have a duo exhibition coming up with the incredible SF painter, Joshua Coffy. Together we are presenting a new series that portrays our paralleled respect and relationship to animals. We've each referenced the other’s work to create our selected mirrored counterparts for this show we've called Reflected Spirits.

Illustrating a connection to animals as sentient beings, Josh brings a unique symbolism to his paintings.  His mixed media works combine many layers of texture, paper patterns and acrylic paint with his individual insight towards how humans relate to the birds and mammals around us. You can view his work at undersong.com/

I am depicting my personal bond to animals by crossing their humanely obtained remains with various doll parts, salvaged objects and clay to create hybrid creatures.  I hope to unify the human condition with an animal’s virtue within my 3D assemblage boxes.  

Reflected Spirits will be on exhibit at Secession Art & Design June 2 – July 26, 2015.  If you are in the Bay Area please join us for the opening reception on Friday, June 12th, 6:30-9:30pm.

I have a tendency to personify inanimate objects and feel genuine compassion for those that are damaged or disregarded. I see potential in broken bits and find beauty in rust and erosion. The older an object, the more haunting and alluring its ghost. Collage & assemblage art allows me to indulge these concepts by creating small worlds in a box where tall tales are told, jokes are cracked, emotions stirred, poems imparted and songs are sung.

By using images that replicate the past and objects that authenticate it, my pieces become storytellers, dream interpreters and memory inducers. They are innately lyrical and flicker along to their own silent film. Their dimensional nature and design intend for you to raise an eyebrow and lean in for a closer look.
