Grad school messes with everyone

check this out! it's the statement I was forced to make about 3 months before my MFA show in 2005. I made an effort to be a little bit confusing because I was just fed up with all the B.S. in school. Of course I had to stay on target, and if you read it carefully it does speak to what I was working on at the time. I have re-read my fellow classmates statements and most of them are confusing and egotistical. This makes me wonder how much of that is on purpose and how much of it artists force themselves to believe.

At any rate, check this stuff out because it's a bit funny.

juried alumni show at Katzen Center

The Katzen Center was completed the summer immediately after I graduated. I watched the building being built from the grad studio windows, knowing that the MFA students who were one year behind me would be moving in to the new huge building. It's is quickly becoming a big deal in D.C. so I am honored to have one of my paintings selected for the alumni show. It might be the excuse I need to visit some people in D.C. I have not been back down there since graduation in in 2005.

here is the piece that was selected
and the portfolio from which it was selected
