My first solo show "Peacemaker" will be taking place at The Carrack in Durham, NC, November 30 - December 10. This exhibition represents a dramatic shift in my art from the last two years. It includes large oil paintings with smaller sketches on paper. 

These multidisciplinary works, which combine photo transfers, glued paper, and oil paints, serve to represent the totality of human nature – arguing that our humanity cannot be defined by gender, clothing, or mate choice alone. My characters live in a chaotic prism of repeating images and heightened color, expressing both the noble and darker sides of the psyche.

This Kickstarter will allow me to offer a printed catalog to accompany the exhibition. It also funds the exhibition itself: framing my work, printing post cards, and generating a small advertising budget. 

"Peacemaker" is a milestone in my career as an emerging artist. It serves as a launching point to advance my practice. I plan to use this catalog to show my work to prospective galleries and sell at the art conventions I attend. Those interested in the exhibition but do not have the resources or spae to buy original work can purchase thee catalogs as a sampler to my vision.

The Catalog: 52 pages. softcover bound. printed in full color with a matte coating and thick paper stock on the cover.

About The Carrack

The Carrack is an artist-centered, volunteer-run, zero-commission exhibition and event space in downtown Durham, North Carolina. The space hosts a new exhibition every two weeks, as well as frequent performances, workshops and creative gatherings. The Carrack is devoted to providing creative opportunities for artists. All proceeds of this kickstarter go to the artist and not the gallery. 

Risks and challenges

This exhibition is scheduled at The Carrack in Durham, NC from November 30 - December 10. This project's funding level is the minimum amount I need to produce a exhibition. That includes a catalog to accompany the show and a professionally framed and installed exhibition at The Carrack.

The art is completed. All that's left is to design the catalog and install the show. I am more than excited to get this project the final touches it needs to be a real treat for the community in Durham. For those who can't make the show dates, I hope the catalog serves as a memento of this milestone in my career for you.
