M2 Gallery Exhibition Rescheduled

The dates for my exhibition at M2 Gallery has changed.
The exhibit will run from September1 - October 4 and the Reception will be on Thursday, September 2 from 6-10. For more information please call 501-225-6271.

Here are a couple of pieces that will be featured in this exhibit entitled Reverie and Passages. Both pieces were inspired by trips throughout Europe.

The piece Reverie contains a melding of neo-classical architectural elements. In the upper left corner of the image is the dome of the majestic Chiesa Della Gran Madre di Dio of Rome, Italy crowned by a cupola. The dome of this church is flanked by two bell-towers although only one is visible in this composition. The baby was seen on a billboard in Rome near the Spanish Steps. The bottom half depicts a woman I saw seated at a pew in a cathedral in Rome. The upper right image was from my travels on the Mediterranean Sea in Nice, France.

The work Passages contains a statue at the right rendered in Prismacolor and acrylic and is one of the many cemetery statues I’ve drawn while traveling in Europe. The image of the structure in the center is a solvent transfer rendering of the Vatican’s St. Peters Basilica. The figures to the right of the basilica are statues found along the northern transepts of Chartres Cathedral in France. The lion to the right of the statues is actually rendered from a photo I shot about 20 years earlier of a lion sculpture found near the fine arts building on the campus of MSSU in Joplin, MO. Just beneath the lion is another solvent transfer of St. Peters Basilica in Vatican City.
