I am so excited to invite you to my upcoming show in collaboration with Marta Staudinger. Our show is called “Coalesce”, an exhibition of expressive abstract paintings. Marta and I chose this name because it seemed like we just kept coming together over and over in multiple business capacities over the last year. We keep merging and working together that doing a show together seemed like a natural step.

Marta is an artist, curator, gallery owner (Latela Art Gallery) and Smithsonian lecturer. In choosing what this show would look like we decided to limit our color palette and closely discuss the vulnerabilities, transformations, difficulties and happy mistakes that naturally arise during our artistic practices.

We talked and experimented quite a bit together while working on these pieces. This is what is exciting for me that even though we had clear color palettes, and ideas in mind, all of our works look so different yet cohesive together. Clearly by different artists, but in the same flavor and palette. Collaborations like this are so fun and rewarding.

It is with great honor and excitement that we extend the invitation to you to come visit our show! I the meantime I hope you enjoyed some of the up close detail shots of some of the pieces coming to the show!
