Okay, so it’s been a minute.
I’ve neglected wordpress because I’ve been hanging out with tumblr.
I don’t type much over there though – mostly I use it for pictures – so I will resume posting on this blog.
I’ve missed this place.
As well as hanging out on tumblr, I’ve been working!
So here are some updates:
- I’ve been working on a project for the past couple of months titled “Get Angry”. It will be done this weekend, and I’m pretty happy with the way it’s turning out. The project is a series of paintings on specific protests and revolutions that have happened across the world in 2011. I wanted to present them all at once, which is why I haven’t posted each individual piece as I’ve finished them, like I normally would. I will definitely post each painting and and explain them here once I put them out though.
- I redid my website. Woot!
- I’m currently exhibiting in a group show titled “Dirty Sensibilites” being held at the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI). The show is about southern life and culture. Being from Oklahoma, it was dope to revisit my youth and upbringing in the south for the show. I’ve been in Philly for so long that sometimes I forget about horses, the woods, fish fry’s, etc.
- For “Dirty Sensibilities, I did a new piece, Grandma Minnie. This painting, seen below, is following in the footsteps of my paintings Standing From What Was and Iran to America to Being, in that it uses paper along with oil paint. I love the effect, and am it using the same style in a few of the Get Angry pieces.
Stay around. I’m posting more. I promise. lol.
