The Meaning of Life, July 5 – August 10, at The Wall Gallery

The Meaning of Life   I have 5 new, large, paintings on display at The Wall Gallery at 473 25th St., Oakland, CA The paintings represent different stages in the cycle of human life, development, and death. The paintings were originally an attempt to weave a narrative between two recent major life events: the birth of my daughter and the death of a life long friend.  In the process of making these works I found that I was unable to communicate about each event in a similar visual language and instead I refocused on the individual message of each piece.  I would like to give a special thanks to my partner, Olay, because without her support I would not have had the ability to complete these. Please Join me on August 2nd, from 6–9pm, during Oakland Art Murmur's First Friday to view the paintings.   The gallery is otherwise open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12 - 6.
