'Hank & Gram'
|Over the past few years I have chosen to exhibit outside of the normal art gallery environment and have shown my work in anti-establishment venues, music festivals and temporary sites.
These situations invite spontaneity and a freedom from the restraints of the standard gallery setting.
Previous exhibitions; 2008
March '08 - Casa Laguna, Akumal, Mexico. 'Street Paintings' solo show
May, 2009 - 'Subversive Figures' group show St.Ives Soc. of Artists, Cornwall, UK.
May 2011- My book 'BREAKFAST in NUDIE SUITS' released. A road-trip chronicle of the beginnings of Alternative Country music, the misadventures of the International Submarine Band & Gram Parsons. Critics have called it the most refreshingly different music book written in decades. Reviews: on www.amazon.co.uk. and on 'My Book' page on this site.
Various presentations of artwork to people, institutions and music heritage societies who I deemed worthy of honor:
Jan. 2012- I began working on a new series of artwork based around iconic figures from the 1940s-50s who cast the molds and set the precedents that would define the ephemeral American media empire. Jack Lalane, Spike Jones, Carmen Miranda, Col. Tom Parker are a few that I have chosen to be included in 'The Fast-Forward Empire' series.
