Freshly documented work!

Images of some recent work have been added to the 'Abstract' section of the site. In other news, I will have some new work up on display at Insomnia Cafe ( - @ Bloor & Bathurst, Toronto) at the beginning of July. A classy establishment in one of my favourite areas of town. More details to come. And more work to come for Abstract Implications 3, later this summer!

new work! 'compositions' - acrylic and mixed media on composite panels ...with another new piece peeking out of the background...

the curved 'infinity wall' section of Brockton really does create a sense of boundless  space. here's Ian, lost in the void

Abstract Implications 3 - call for submissions!

In addition to Band Tease 2, planning is currently underway for the third iteration of Abstract Implications; a celebration of abstract art in all its myriad forms. At the moment I am working with past AA collaborators to lock down a venue for the show, which will run for 2 weeks toward the end of July or early August, 2013. Stay tuned for more details!

Band Tease 2: Band T-shirts for Bands that don't Exist!

Friday May 10, 2013 at The 460 (460 Spadina, Toronto), the follow-up to last year's Band Tease will be going down. Participation in this show is open to all who wish to get their hands dirty and silk screen (or whatever other method you prefer) up some fun fake band T's! Last year's show was the result of all those times the phrase, "that'd make a great band name", came up in conversation and us finally deciding to put our ink  where our mouths are. This year is shaping up to be even better than last! Participation has at least doubled from last year's show, and we are pleased to host the work of some international artists from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, where the illustrious Eric Euler (past collaborator/partner in crime and currently working on his MFA in printmaking down South) has taken on the task of coordinating shipment of t-shirts up to the grim, frozen North. He is also organizing a Southern edition of Band Tease, slated for some time in the fall. More details on that one to follow + more details to come for the Toronto event. In the meantime, here's the official call for submissions for Band Tease 2:
