Tonight two of my films, namaste and Indistinct Boundaries #2, will be shown at Denver’s Friday Flash #4. The screening will be at Champa and 14th on the large LED screen visible from the street. From the Friday Flash promo:
The Denver Theatre District and Denver Digerati present Friday Flash No.4, a program of motion based art by resident artists from Denver’s RedLine Studios. RedLine is a diverse urban laboratory where art, education and community converge, and one of the most respected artist residency programs in the region. RedLine engages approximately 15 to 20 artists at any given time for durations of up to three years, with a structure that supports both emerging and mentoring contemporary artists. Friday Flash No. 4 will present works by some of the current crop of resident artists who have a concentration in motion-based art or have projects that extend into that realm, including Katie Martineau-Caron, Nikki Pike, Katie Watson, Lurke (Laura Shill in collaboration with Burke Miles), Donald Fodness (in collaboration with Barry Whittaker and Mike Bernhardt) as well as Bryan Leister and Justin Beard, two commissioned artists for Friday Flash No 5. The works will be shown on the LED screen at 14th and Champa Street in downtown Denver on Friday, August 9th starting at 6:30 PM.
My painting Surface is being shown at the Ironton Group Show. Opening is Saturday, August 17th 6-11PM.

To coincide with the Denver Theater Film district’s Digital Digerati film commission series I was invited to create a new work for the Plus Gallery’s show Mirage in 2013. Seven artists were asked to propose artworks for exhibition and I created Interactive Reliquary, a sculpture consisting of 3D digital prints and an interactive game using the newly released OUYA game console.
The Plus Gallery is recognized as one of the most progressive galleries in Denver since it’s opening in 2001. The Denver Post named Plus the “Art Space of the Year” in 2009.
I was commissioned to create a new work by the Denver Theater District for the new Denver Digerati collection. This collection of films will be premiered on September 20th on the Denver Theater District’s LED screens located in downtown Denver.

Luciferase is an installation that I have created for the Month of Photography that will be shown at Walker Fine Art. that will be shown at Walker Fine Art. The exhibition runs from March 1 to April 12.
The photography in the exhibition is amazing by regional and national photographers – Sally Stockhold, Andrew Beckham, David Agee, Robert Buelteman and Michael McConnell . My piece is more of a live video installation than true photography, but the effect of portraits glowing in the bottle does have a photographic quality.
My portrait of Pierre L’Enfant will be published in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland as part of a series of history books published by Bonnier publications about Secret Societies.
My portrait of Pierre L’Enfant will be illustrating a 5 year plan for the DC Historic Preservation Office.
