LaCrosse) My process probes linkages to primitive cultures, symbology and “spiritual magic” striving to discover the power of primal graphic cues and truth. This path tends to contradict societal mass consumption, media overload and technology obsession. My work explores “tribalism” and a love for primitive honesty, the patinated walls of fa... [more]

Stacks of blue medical pipette tips glued on two sides of a clear acrylic sheet became a floating, translucent iceberg. Draped rolls of unspooling cash register receipt paper, set on edge and pinned to the wall, were made by shadow and gravity... [more]

Judy Pfaff at Azusa Pacific University Galleries October 21st, 2013 - December 6th, 2013
Posted 10/25/13

I entered the empty Bob Bullock Gallery space on Azusa Pacific's West Campus at 7:55 a few nights ago to see what might be meant by a Judy Pfaff exhibition titled, "The Art of Flower Arranging." To either side, the long walls of the gallery were covered from the eye level of a child into the open, framing architecture of the ceiling, with bands of photographs in series. The content of these varied from what appeared to be the documentation of bone arrangement in taxonomy and studio sho... [more]

JOHN VALADEZ at Vincent Price Art Museum September 21st, 2013 - December 7th, 2013
Posted 10/22/13

" I was real careful with it", Valadez expressed when he was telling the story of his early drawing lifetime. He said he remembered making a drawing of Fred Flinstone in grammar school. As a third grader, most of his schnool mates could not believe he had made the drawing. But even as a child, Valadez was already respecting his work by being "careful with it". He was a loner as a child and continues to stress the virtues of solitude as a formula for making art. Valadez is an esteemed a... [more]
