Its been an exciting 2016 spring season for me. I'm currently exhibiting 2 one man art shows at Rooz Cafe in Oakland CA, and at Nectar Wine Lounge in San Francisco CA. Both shows are hanging at the same time and exhibiting a combination of large scale paintings and sculpture. There are 18 pieces of art in total, divided equally with 9 in each venue. One of my most favorite things about making art for a living is when I have the opportunity to curate a one man show in a venue. So having the opportunity to be showing 2 of them at the same time in 2 different cities is really rewarding.
Piano Keys Mixed Media Sculpture #1 is an abstract piece of modern art by artist Bryan Matthew Boutwell. I'd wanted to take apart a piano for some time now, so I could use the parts to create a sculpture. I was blessed one morning when discovering that a stand up piano had been left outside on the curb directly in front of my warehouse live/work space. A wonderful homeless guy helped me drag it into the parkinglot, and I quickly grabbed my tools. It was a long day but an exciting one.
