Marcos Polo 2009


Marcos Polo 2009 (mm, collage, sand, paper, acry) 2 panels 18"x24" ea
This collage is part of my recent and on going "Buddha Series" (originating in May 2005). This series began with an acrylic painting on unstretched canvas (5'x5') and has grown to 5 large scale paintings. The Buddha is represented in various forms. In the case of Marcos Polo, the Chinese warriors are the buddhas and guides of the Suicide King.

We're Not The Jet Set


STAINLESS STEEL LAMPS TRANSFORMING INTO A TOWER OF STAINLESS STEEL BEADS


I am curating an exhibition at Arena I Gallery-Santa Monica Airport Hanger, of 7-8 collage and mixed-media artists. This work in progress is part of the materials I found at the Central Metal Scrap yard in downtown Los Angeles. I found 30 stainless steel lampshades (I guess that is what they were) that I am transforming into large scale bead forms by welding the lampshades in pairs. This tower is part of the planning process. The forms will be painted in hot pink.

"Look What I Found"




"Look What I Found" Exhibition in the spring of 2010


Seven collage/mixed media artists will be exhibiting @ The Santa Monica Airport Hanger Gallery curatorial space (Curator Sandra Vista)


The artists will be journeying to various recycling and/or scrap yards to find objects to include in their artwork for the show. The photos are part of our first field trip to Central Metal on Alameda near 25th street, downtown Los Angeles.




Baby Smith and Carolyn Vosburgh are two of the artist loading up their shopping cart with "finds"...

Against the backdrop of panaoramic city lights, Todd combines familiar celebratory symbols like snowmen, Christmas tree lights and fireworks...Los Angelinos' will feel a twinge of nostalgia by his "Chinatownland" drawings on paper.
Duane Slick-from the Rhode Island School of Design, was one of Todd's former instructors.
Jennifer welcomed me into her "chapel" the day of the exhibition. The project room is a custom fit for the consecration of the thematic women represented in Jennifer's eight portraits. This series is influenced by Margaret Attwood's book-"The Penelopiad" which is based on Homer's account in The Odyssey of Penelope, the wife of Odysseus, and her cousin Helen of Troy. Odysseus returns after 20 years and does not believe in his wife's fidelity. He kills her suspected suitors and as a bonus-twelve of her maids.
