36", Neon and chrome paint

Exhibited at Stephanie Chefas Gallery, Portland, 2016 as a part of solo exhibition entitled, "Colorways".

Impulsive squiggle drawn with pen on paper and then enlarged to-scale.  Neon pattern made from enlargement and glass is bent directly onto the enlarged pattern.  A direct replica is made from the smaller impulsive drawing paying closer attention to and prolonging a fleeting moment in time.

4'x3'x4', cinder blocks, neon, transformer and spandex, 2017

Exhibited at Athen B Gallery, Oakland

Investigation of Process and Intent: The yearning to stay fluid and organic in a rigid process, the anxieties of the medium and the exposed guts of it all.  Title of work is inspired by my mentor, Roger Daniells, veteran neon bender, who uses his own idioms as a substitution for frustration.  "Pass me the hammer.  A BIG FUCKING HAMMER."
