Cordite Poetry Review


My work TV Dinner is part of Cordite Poetry Review's newest issue of EKPHRASTIC. Cordite is an Australian international journal of poetry review and criticism, and series of print books. I was included in this issue thanks to the talented poet, Mr. David Ades. This may sound confusing, but Mr. Ades wrote a poem referring to two pieces contained in the Verse Envisioned Anthology, Chris Yeager’s Remember That Vietnamese Guy They Shot On TV In 1968 and my work T.V. Dinner. Ades really captures the timeless aspects of our experiences. Some moments whether seen first hand or viewed on a television are so powerful they echo through history and possibly forever.  Be sure to read the poem at the link. * http://cordite.org.au/poetry/ekphrastic/summary-execution-execution-execution/*

Berlin Foto Biennale & European Month Of Photography




I am very happy to be included in the 2016 Berlin Foto Bienniale as this year's Charles Dodgson award winner. A limited large scale black & white edition of 4 of my works from my Sacred Art / Modern World project and a special edition Lions' Den print accompanied by the deconstruction video will also be on view. The Berlin Foto Biennale will be composed of a solo exhibition, retrospective of Steve McCurry of Magnum Photos, a collective exhibition curated among awardees of previous competitions of the Charles Dodgson Award, the Julia M Cameron Award (JMCA,) the Pollux Awards, The Jacob Riis Award, and the recent overall winner of the 9th edition of the JMCA. The Berlin Foto Biennale 2016 is also the 4th edition of the Biennial of Fine Art and Documentary Photography. After Madrid, Buenos Aires and Malaga the curated photo show comes to Berlin to offer emerging and esta­blished artists from all over the world a platform, and to showcase international trends in fine art as well as documentary photography. The Biennial, entitled Emotions and Commotions Across Cultures is situated in the historic heart of Berlin. It features contemporary artists from 41 countries of 5 continents. The winners of this year's award, juried by Andréa Holzherr (Director of Global Exhibitions at Magnum Photos), are also included in this comprehen­sive photographic display. Recognizing a wide array of artistic expression across diverse cultures, the Berlin Foto Biennale 2016 presents a contemporary overview of the different schools of thought emerging from the United States to China, from Australia to Turkey and from Senegal to Mexico. Its spectrum of styles ranges from docu­mentary and wildlife, to portrait and experimental photography. As a special guest of the European Month of Photography, the Biennial also contains an essay by emerging young talent Yusuke Suzuki about the refugee crisis on Lesbos and the chaos in Syria’s Aleppo. As special invitee Magnum photographer Steve McCurry will present 130 of his most remarkable works in his solo exhibition, Retrospective. The Berlin Foto Biennale 2016 presents to visitors not only a panorama of contemporary photography but also a kaleidoscope of sentiments and perceptions captured worldwide. In this way a photographic chro­nicle of our time emerges with all its emotions and commotions.

FROM VIRTUAL TO ACTUAL 5


Curated by Veronica Nemec





Alan Richards * Larry Zdeb * Lynne Johnson * Emmanuel Monzon *  Paula Swisher * Marcia Lloyd * Marilyn Richeda * Jan Brandt * Alex Sewell * Margery Applebaum * Max Tzinman * Jim Jacobs * Christopher Ruane * Ashley Shellhause * Linda Jacobs * Robert Augstell *Paxton Maroney * Chris Vanden Broeke

Chelsea NY: Viridian Artists is pleased to present ” Director’s Choice: From Virtual To Actual 5″, art from the powerpoint presentation of our 26th International Juried Competition. Curated by Vernita Nemec, this exhibit brings the actual art of that virtual presentation to the gallery walls. The exhibit continues from   September 27- October 15, 2016 with an opening reception Thursday, September 29, 6-8PM.

Despite the popularity of the web and the fact that we are becoming more adept at looking at art on the web, seeing art in reality offers the viewer a much richer experience, hence the title “From Virtual to Actual”. All the artists in this exhibition have a personal obsession that serves as a starting point in their search for ways in which to transform inner visions into reality. Transforming these inner realities into art becomes a translation of the “virtual into the actual”.

The Lions' Den - Deconstruction


When asked how my images are made, I always have trouble expressing how much of the image is created.  With my new image The Lions' Den I decided to give people a small look into the inspiration and process of my work through a deconstruction.  Although only about a fourth of the layers are utilized, I hope it still gives people a better understanding of my work flow and can somewhat explain why they can sometimes take years to build.
