BIOlogy

BIOlogy is a large grid painting consisting of (28) 24" x 24" acrylic paintings on canvas. It was done after Katrina while I was in residency in 2006 in Tribeca, NYC, through the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC), with a stipend from the Warhol Foundation. It's the first acrylic painting I had ever done. Like the 120(175) small watercolors, it was borne out of necessity; no one likes a fumey oil painter in a residency environment (I was forbidden to paint with oils) and Golden donated some acrylic paint to the residency program, so I went for it. It was fruitful and I have not turned back yet!

BIOlogy is a part of the permanent collection of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans. It has been up for extended periods at the Ogden twice so far, and prior had been shown at the CAC with other New Orleanian La Napoule, France, residency artists, and in NYC during the TOAST artist studio tour in 2006.
