I've spent a fair bit of time in Rockaway so far this summer, first renting a few 1-night stays, then with my kids on a houseboat for a week. I am endlessly inspired by this place. These are a few shots from my recent travels out there, as I ponder a new series of night images.

I'm pleased to announce I'll be showing two pieces from City Meets Sea: Meditations, at the Brooklyn Workshop Gallery, through March 26.
Part of what I love about this gallery, and Martine Bisagni, the founder, is how strongly they believe in supporting up and coming artists like myself, and their dedication to engaging with the community at large, through artist-lead classes and workshops.
This is a unique opportunity for me to share my otherwise difficult-to-share [very large] work, and to support an institution that relies on their community. Please consider stopping in to see the work, and the beautiful things Martine has spun up through her beloved space.
Opening Friday, March 17, 5-8p
- Brooklyn Workshop Gallery is located at 393 Hoyt Street in Brooklyn, NY 11231
- The work will be on view through March 26. The gallery is open Thu & Fri 1-7p; Sat & Sun 12-7, and Tues & Wed by appointment. You can reach the gallery at 718.797.9428 or email@example.com with inquiries
As always, thank you for your support. I hope to see you there!
The latest batch of dead flowers finally lit my inspiration.
2016 was the year I officially fell in love with the Rockaways. As part of my exploration of all the wild places within the boundaries of NYC, I have been obsessed with Jamaica Bay for years, and this gorgeous recently renovated 9-mile expanse of ocean front drew me right in. There's so much more for me to explore here, which I'll certainly do in 2017. View the images.
Dead Flowers, December 2016. At this point, I buy flowers just so I can see how they look when they die.
