Year of the Tiger

1962, 2010, oil on linen, 62 x 56 in., 157 x 142 cm.

Just finished my painting for an upcoming Bristol, UK group exhibition. This image was conceived back in January and is not only in celebration of the Chinese Year of the Tiger and my birthday, but also in acknowledgment (or a reminder to myself maybe) of the positive attitude or feeling I had going into 2010. I know it's not necessarily an uplifting looking image, but it is, I hope, a viscerally charged representation of the human need for vitality in life (which is not always gotten freely or without scars).

Facebook Fan Page

Even though it seems a bit redundant (already having my personal Facebook page, and a Facebook group page created and administered by Ahmet Daglilar), I went ahead and created an official Facebook fan page as well. From here on out I'll start posting any and all art and exhibition related items here. If you're so inclined, please join at
