The Upstairs Apartment Gallery

Here is a great article from the Dalhousie Student paper about my friends Stoo Metz, Chris Lockerbie and The Upstairs Apartment Gallery.

I did these a while ago, but I thought I'd post 'em anyway! I'm working on some new stuff at the moment. You'll see...

Thank you to all the people that showed up last night at 'The Upstairs Appartment Gallery'. I was a successful enough to sell several paintings and a print. If you did not get to see the work, the Gallery will still be open for view until Monday January 26, 12:00 -5:00.

Some of my favourite Detectives

"Joe Friday"

"Eddie Valiant"

These aren't silkscreened prints, they are actually paintings. They were fun to do. I was looking at Jackson Pollock's paintings and really admire the splattered paint techniques he came up with. I thought it would be cool to do something like that, only in representational imagery. I guess these paintings kind of have an Andy Warhol feel to them too.

I had one canvas left over. I dropped it and it gave me the idea for this painting. ...It was a lot funnier at the time.
If you're in downtown Halifax the evening of January 23rd, swing by 'The Upstairs Appartment Gallery" at 2420 Agricola Street. All the above paintings will be for sale along with other work of mine and the work of other talented local artists. See you there!

'Family Portrait'

This painting is about how our digital identities are becoming far more prominent then ourselves. We continue ushering new ways to incorporate technology into our lives and have started to communicate more on a digital realm, opposed to actual interaction.

Or, maybe it’s just a frivolous painting of people with electronics for heads. You tell me.
