Co-Incidental, One Night Only Show

I will be showing at a group show titled "Co-Incidental" on July 9th at White Box Gallery in Lower East side, 329 Broome Street

White Box Gallery. 329 Broome Street

Francesca Arcilesi and Norm Busigo are pleased to present Co-Incidental
Thursday, July 9th at White Box Gallery from 6 - 9 PM.

This show exemplifies how each work exists as its own incident, a testament to their
ability to synthesize and transpose their commonplace into a visual language.
Co-Incidental features works by (New York City Artists): Jon Allen, Vincent Arcilesi,
Alex Callender, Inna Babaeva, Kate Goyette, Jordan Hollender, Jun'ichiro Ishida, Kristin
Lindner, Frank de Las Mercedes, Fernando Molero, Hyo Nam, Erik von Ploennies, Jeffrey
Allen Price, Jeffrey Rothstein, Emanuele Simonelli, Nola Romano, Jesse Scaturro, and
Steve Zolin.

Like the gears of an invisible machine, the doors of chance open, close, and revolve infinity
around us. Co-Incidental is about the discovery of artists. Starting with random
ingredients that begin to blend into an eclectic cohesion. As flavors begin to meld, human
beings start to draw connections between seemingly disparate things. Curators Arcilesi &
Busigo draw connections between the strong imagery and aesthetics of these artists in this
one-night only " incident " at the White Box Gallery.

For more information please contact Francesca Arcilesi,
and Norma Busigo,

Liliput: Tiny Art for Big People

I am currently in a group show called "Lilliput: Tiny Art for Big People" at Walsh Gallery, Selton Hall University, in South Orange, New Jersey.
I have 4 pieces which are all 1.5" x 1.5". The medium of my choice was scratch board.

Now to Thu, Jul 23 2009
10:30am - 4:30pm Mon-Thu

“Lilliput” a group exhibition was curated by Asha Ganpat and Jeanne Brasile will be on view at The Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall University from June 8 through July 23, 2009. “Lilliput” includes artwork in all media that is no larger than 1.5 inches in any direction. Visitors to the gallery will be provided with a magnifying glass to view details of the artwork that would be otherwise invisible to the naked eye. The show promotes active looking and presents the artistic niche of “micro-art.” Artists working in this genre enlist the aid of such tools as microscopes, lenses and magnifying glasses (among other tools) during the creative process producing detailed imagery, which in turn, requires the use of magnifying aids to view it.

Lotus Paintings

I have been making "Lotus Series" of painting for while now.

The main subject matter of the “Lotus series” is not mealy description and application to the delicate lotus flower which grows from the muddiest of waters. The symbolism here is of the process of enlightenment: The buds reach up towards the surface, comes out of the water and blooms. A person reaches their full potential (blossoms), by overcoming their own negativities such as anger, greed and jealousy (the mud). My wish is that viewer can visualize themselves as a lotus flower and guide themselves to an awakened state of mind in order to achieve true happiness.

What's cooking?

Dear friends;
I am a visual and performing artist, based in Brooklyn, New York. People often ask me where I get my ideas for my art. I have decided to share the process of my art making here. In order to do so, I will share the entire insights, disclose all influences, and explain all background, which means that I will write about things that shook my soul, my concerns in current issues, my art activity, and my not-art activities but still relevant to my art.

Here are some of my latest creations.

This is very fresh piece, the latest edition to my lotus series. I will talk about my lotus series some other time.
