Since my last exhibition, I intensified my focus in the studio, developing distinctively refined techniques for a compelling new body of work: From the Wabi Sabi Series, Portraits in Evolution. Wabi-Sabi is a traditional Japanese concept of beauty passed down through generations. It is a vision of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.  It is modest and humble. It is the allure of all things unconventional. Below is a glimpse into my journey in achieving Wabi-Sabi:

INSPIRATIONS. 
Last month I stole away to Italy with my family to experience le dolce vita and collected inspiration for my new works.

IN THE NEWS.
I've had the great honor to collaborate with so many talented individuals in the culinary and design worlds.  Congratulations to Roister on being featured in this past month's issue of Hospitality Design and in Chicago Magazine! It was an absolute pleasure to work with the team at 555 International on the installation of the Boar's Head piece. I'm flattered to have one of my works in this amazing restaurant and for 555 to feature it on their homepage.

Palimpsest Series

The Palimpsest series is a sustained exploration of the beauty and truth that is abundant in our natural world. The series reveals the simple and innate elegance of nature by magnifying historical observations and renderings within a contemporary context.

INSPIRATIONS. 
A small collection of inspiring moments captured through my lenses.


RETROSPECTIVE.
Last year I had the great pleasure and honor of incorporating the Palimpsest series into an unique dining experience that paired my art with the culinary genius of Alinea chef Grant Achatz.  The experience of The Progression [ a pop-up in Fulton Market ] that Grant created was about breaking boundaries in terms of texture, palette, and color.  My art is also about breaking boundaries. I created 24 unique works, including two large murals and a series titled Circular Moments.


IN THE NEWS.
I'm very pleased to be featured in the newly released 2017 Arts Guide, by Chicago Gallery News, which highlights the incredible art being produced this year in Chicago. This city is a cultural inspiration and I'm privileged to call it my home!
