Local Art Collective #Exnovates

Just sharing a little press we received from the #Exnovation show at THEMUSEUM a few months back. Yes, I like blogging, but I'm lazy.

The first is a quote from The Community Edition:

"Iä! Iä!" screams an acrylic typewriter, its keys assaulted by the enormous tentacles of an octopus-like beast beaming from the centre of a small, square painting.

"It's based on Lovecraft," explained D.H. McKee, co-creator of the mixed-media painting, "Non-Euclidean Poetry," currently on display at THEMUSEUM. The phrase is taken from "Iä! Iä! Cthulhu fhtagn": a call used to summon an elder god.

Local Art Collective #Exnovates - The Community Edition

We also got our painting mentioned as one of the favourites at Culture Fancier, a regional arts blog.

Not too shabby, eh?

For those who missed the show, here's a full version of the painting:

BFA Spring Program Cover 2017

Look who's on the cover of the Button Factory Arts Spring program guide.


Sold another painting

Technically, it was donated to the Button Factory Arts as part of their OOTLA fundraiser, but it helped raise money for a good cause.

Hi folks, we're gearing up for the #Exnovation show. It's Collective Identity's big 2017 exhibition, and it's coming up soon. Ryan Brooks and I are happy to be part of this of this collaborative event.

Join us January 12th at 7pm at THEMUSEUM, where Ryan and I will be unleashing our work, "Non-Euclidean Poetry." Here are some samples.

Come to the show (https://www.facebook.com/events/916571355144206/) to see the full piece and many other collaborations.

#Exnovation Experiment

Artist Ryan Brooks and I are working on a couple of ideas for the #Exnovation project

The concept is to share a work, 50-50 between a couple of artists. Instead of working on half of a canvas, our plan is to have us overlap our work, one on top of the other. I've provided the first part, and we'll see what Ryan does with it.

Here's the first part:

Getting Back To Work

In the dead of winter, I'm warm and cozy in my heated studio. I've rearranged some of the tables and the art wall, to produce a very useable space, which has different zones for different needs. Near the door, R's motorcycle sleeps out the winter in a warm space. Next to it are the heavy punching bag, and the double-ended bag, for when I feel like a little boxing. The futon/couch is next to the dance mirror, which can be moved aside when R feels like a little dance practice. In the middle of it is the art wall, and easels, behind which is storage for blank canvases and bikes. Against the far wall is the toolbox and work table, for when something needs to be fixed.

All in all, a good space to work, and with the wifi repeater, I've got a strong Internet connection for streaming audio ... Pandora radio, or SomaFM.

I've been working on a number of projects, including this new piece (sorry, it's sold already):

Some new paintings

I bought some 20" (51cm) canvases at State of the Art Supplies, wanting to try them out before moving to some larger (and more expensive) 36" (91cm) and 48" (122cm) sizes. I'm also cleaning up the studio; finding room to store the larger pieces, and prepping it for the new doors that are coming in. Once that's done, I'll be putting drywall in, and getting it into proper shape.

I've also started naming the pieces. After talking with the yoga studio people, I've learned that it's easier to talk about pieces if you've got names for them. This brings to light a new issue which I hadn't really considered -- what to name different paintings when you're working on them.
