Cambridge Open Studios is coming up this weekend. If you are in the Boston area please stop by! I’ll have paintings up for display and sale and my friend Laura has promised to make cupcakes.
Because I worked on both abstract and realistic pieces this year I wasn’t sure what to call the show, or which painting to highlight for the poster. But this title was rattling around in my head, and seemed appropriate for a year in which I played with new media, pushed myself in abstraction, and tried to bring my abstract and realistic styles closer together. Recently my more realistic pieces have all centered around transportation. Train stations, highways, airports. I find these places evocative and it doesn’t hurt that they align with Joey’s interests.
Here is a preview of a few pieces that will be in the show. I’ll put up a complete catalog later in the week.
