Announcing my first solo exhibition in Hawaii on Saturday, July 8 at PORTAL Art Gallery in Pahoa!
The Big Island influences my work in a major way. Namely, in order to achieve my surface textures, I use elements from my environment including: earth, rain water, black, white and green sand, plaster, concrete, coconut fronds and rusted metal, just to name a few.
Mostly though, I find that it's the intense energy felt here on the island (as a result of the constant volcanic eruptions), as well as the rich contrast in the Hawaiian landscape that influence my work the most.
Any ideas on what I should call my show???
