I have had so much fun sculpting this raven head out of castilene and transforming it into a resin sculpture with Silent Stage Gallery. We will be releasing four color versions of this sculpture. The first is the glow in the dark (Halloween Edition) raven with a hand stenciled box. It will be limited to an edition of 50 pieces. The size of each raven is 3"W x 3"L x 3.75" Tall. Each raven will be signed, numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity. They will be priced at $80 per piece and will be available on October 14th at 11am PST Visit Silent Stage Gallery for upcoming details.

I'm pretty excited about this exhibit. I'll be posting progress photos of my work and look forward to traveling back to NC for this artshow..... more details soon ... Exhibition details here. Following Green Hill Center’s 2008 survey North Carolina printmakers, this exhibition continues to examine the evolution of printmaking as one of the dominant influences in today’s visual culture. The four artists brought together for this exhibition conceive works that defy the confines of a frame or matrix that is the basis of traditional printmaking and work towards a three dimensional presence in space. Through layering, Western NC artist April Flanders builds up texture in installations composed of groups of prints in which plant forms appear to overrun gallery walls like some scientific experiment gone awry. A sense of wild, yet fragile, nature is also evident in the likenesses of deer and birds by Raleigh artist Mathew Curran. The direct stencil process characteristic of urban street art, utilizing ink or red NC clay as a pigment, lends his life-size subjects a haunting presence. Charlotte artist Indrani Nayar-Gall combines intaglio processes with paper-cutting and organic materials, such as rice, in new works examining the ritual traditions of her native India. Durham artist Mark Iwinski’s “stump prints” of ancient trees taken directly from old growths utilizes printmaking as a surveyor’s tool for measuring contemporary amputations and absences.

Here is a sneak peek into my latest project in the works. I have a couple of shows coming up in early 2014 and I wanted to combine my stencil artwork with some sculptural elements. I'm starting off with a couple frame ideas.. I've been sketching and planning frames for some stencils I have in mind. This is going to be a fun challenge!!
