Sutro Tower Triangle Waves (2010)
Oil, Acrylic and Spray Paint on Canvas
Recently I was commissioned to make a painting according to these parameters: sized 4"x 6", the image of Sutro Tower in San Fransisco, and in the style of my triangle grid paintings. The new owner of this piece now has a collection of four renditions of Sutro Tower by different artists, each of similar size. I hope this cool project continues to grow.
I'll be exhibiting some new work in a few weeks. Stop by, say hello.

I recently acquired ten sculptures of countries through an art trade with Chicago based artist and collector Ben Foch. Read about his project The World in this Proximity article. In short, Ben made a sculpture of every country and priced them according to their GDP value (1 USD to 1 Billion GDP/PPP). The piece was exhibited at the Hyde Park Art Center in January of 2009. I traded my series of triangle paintings that I showed at Old Gold last November. When I was initially trying to decide which countries I wanted to own, I had no idea what strategy to use. I looked for a continent, but there was not one intact due to previous sales. I considered picking countries that I thought were cool, or had interesting music scenes happening, but Iceland was taken and Sweden and Norway are ugly. I almost chose every country in the southern 30 - 45 latitude region. Instead, I picked countries for formal reasons, their size and shape and sexy curves.
