Close up of my 3D wood sculpture: "Paradise Cove" 
Pieces like these are few and far between since they can take up to a month from start to finish. I created 3 for my first solo show and also to coincide with Tiki Farms "Tiki Mondo Show" in celebration of their 15 Year Anniversary hosted by: La Luz De Jesus Gallery.

Wenge wood veneer. All hand shaped with little files and the main shapes sit on top on little metal standoffs. Customized framing with  vintage grasscloth and fabric. There are 2 more designs available via La Luz De Jesus but when they are gone, they are gone and I won't be creating more of these pieces for quite a while.

You can see everything that is still available from my show here.

Opening Night tonight for LALUZAPALOOZA 2015

You can find pictures of the install courtesy of Lee Joseph of Reverberations Media by clicking here.

March 6 – 29, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, March 6th, 8-11 PM

"La Luz De Jesus Gallery proudly presents our annual juried group exhibition, LALUZAPALOOZA. This gigantic, no-theme show features works from some of the freshest and most relevant artists working today. Last year we sorted through 16,000 submissions from commercial illustrators, graphic designers, tattooists, scenics, students, street taggers, animators and working gallery artists.  How many will we see this year? Past shows have featured as many as 330 pieces and as few as 100, making this the most exclusive selection of tastefully, jam-packed, salon-style exhibited works in Post-Pop. There will be some familiar names from our ever-growing roster of feature artists, but an overwhelming percentage of the work this year will come from a brand new batch of previously undiscovered, emerging talent. Will you be a patron of the next great generation?"
