I'm thrilled to be able to invite you to the unveiling of my newest series of paintings, entitled "Discarded Memories" at the Phantom Gallery on May 19.
I've always been drawn to vintage photography, often standing for ages in antique stores sifting through boxes of discarded family memories now for sale for 10 cents apiece. I have been collecting some of these photos, which have inspired this series of narrative works. Every picture tells me a story, and I try to bring it to life on canvas to pay respect to the person whose memories have been tossed aside.
Also on display will be works from artists representing the International Artist's Group - Lewis Rice, Piotr Wolodkowicz, Alan Emerson Hicks, Jolanta Nawrocka, Ruyell Ho and Mark Matejko. It's going to be a fantastic show!
When: Saturday, May 19 2012, 7pm - 10pm
Where: Phantom Gallery at 4161 North Damen, Chicago
This group show runs May 19 - June 10.
