The Compound Gallery, in Oakland, CA presents "Happy Accidents," a solo show featuring my recent foray into color. For years I have worked mostly with black, white, and grey (and occasionally reddish-orange-brown) in ink or pencil. Recently I’ve experienced a color epiphany, with a new cast of characters in the form of paintings, drawings, and sculpture. Come out and see the technicolor, recessive, gene-pool family. Show pics here. | East Bay Express review here. | Oakland Art Enthusiast feature here.
