“Josephine / Rest Haven Motel,” 2017, Collection of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art

“Recently I was delighted to attend the opening gala of the Outwin 2019: American Portraiture Today at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. My drawing of Josephine, a wonderful fellow artist and even more lovely human, was one of 47 works selected from over 2,600 entries to the competition.”

“It was an honor to be represented in the triennial exhibition for a second time, and arriving for the opening felt a little bit like coming home. I had an absolute blast both meeting and reconnecting with artists from all over the U.S. who are as fascinated and obsessed with the human experience as I am. A huge thank you is due to the wonderful folks at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art for being so accommodating, generous, and supportive during the entire process.”

The exhibition will be on view at the National Portrait Gallery through August 2020, and then will embark on a year-long national tour.

“Looking ahead, I will have brand-new work on view during Art Basel week in Miami. Details are forthcoming, but below is a sneak peak of the new works continuing my recent explorations into the history, cultural outgrowth, and human cost of nuclear testing in the United States.”
