Per the gallery that organized the artist exhibition: The word talent originally was meant to represent a unit of mass. It was used in ancient times in Greece, the Roman Empire, and the Middle East to weigh precious metals like gold and silver. The word is often tied to the Bible parable, Matthew 25:14-30, that explains that one should not hide a God given endowment, and that even one talent is a large sum.
The word talent is now used to describe ones natural and abilities, aptitudes, and inclinations to do something extremely well.
For this exhibition; local, national, and international artists submitted work for this open theme show. The results are inspiring and remarkable.
The event will be part of Laguna Beach ArtWalk on Thursday November 5th from 6:30 pm to 10pm for the Artist Reception (I won’t be able to be there – I’ll be at Art San Diego Contemporary’s VIP night!!! but I do plan on going to the gallery late on Saturday.) The exhibition runs from November 5th to November 30.
￼￼￼I am a professional artist with works currently collected in 6 countries, specializing in using Liquitex Pouring Medium (LPM) and high-end acrylics to create movement-based paintings that capitalize on LPM's amazing luminosity and light bounce.
For several years now, I have been a "Pour Painter" - meaning, I work by pouring paint mixed most often with Liquitex Pouring medium then tilting, smooshing, dripping and tilting again. In experimenting with it early on, I found it filled my need for visual movement as well as the fused glass look I've been after.
I recently completed an almost 7 month Artist in Residence at the Mendocino Art Center in Mendocino, CA, which brought my previous Underwater/Ocean Series above the surface with a new Coastal Rock series I'm excited by. Aside from these, I sometimes then do a more playful non objective abstraction, which sets me free if I'm getting too constricted.
I spent ten years managing the Bothwell Arts Center in Livermore while still maintaining my business as an artist. I left the Bothwell in March of 2017 and have dedicated my time to taking pour painting to new levels.
