The 13th Hour Group Show

This past month I’ve had the honor of my painting Sacrament (Vanitas) being on display at Last Rites Gallery in NYC, as part of their annual Halloween group show The 13th Hour.

This year’s lineup of artists was exceptional, and I’m sad to not have been able to attend the opening reception last month. From what I saw in the online preview, the pieces in this show were top notch.

 If you’re in the NYC area, you can check them all out in person until November 15th. My painting is for sale through the gallery until that date.

April Magazine Exposure

By sheer coincidence I have paintings featured in 2 magazines this month, both from my ongoing Apostasy series.

The painting Hand Of God II graces the inside back cover of anarchist journal Rolling Thunder #11 (with a beautiful 7-word interpretation offered by the editor), while a newer painting Sacrament (Vanitas) causes queasiness on the front cover of Tattoo Artist Magazine #37.
