Exhibit scheduled for February 2013, exhibiting my most recent series of meat themed paintings. Beauty & brutality, all in one exhibit.

I have an exhibit secured for February 2013 -  the location will be announced as soon as the date is confirmed. I'm proud to be showing my recent paintings in a premier butcher shop in Los Angeles. Yes, that's right. My exhibit will be in a butcher shop. I felt that a gallery setting was far too sterile for this body of work.

My paintings are inspired my the classic still lifes of Rembrandt, that included freshly butchered meat, fowl and the like, as well as French painter Chaim Soutine. Most recently, Francis Bacon, the master of raw brutality, has been a huge influence.

Although several paintings have been completed, there is much more to be done in the next few weeks, and I am requesting sponsorship to obtain costly additional supplies and canvas, framing materials, and general promotion of the exhibit and the opening reception, i.e., printed postcards, postage, etc.

Thank for your sponsorship consideration!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

My biggest challenge with this exhibit will be the physical display of my work. The butcher shop that is hosting this exhibit has limited wall space, so the challenge will be to design special framing so that the paintings can hang from the ceiling. After the reception, the paintings will be exhibited for several weeks, so they need to be easily viewed, but as the same time not interfere with the day to day business of this very busy retail space.
