Enigma - my solo exhibition at Gallerie Valerie, Crockett, CA


Thanks to the gallerist and artist Valerie Quade, I had the opportunity to exhibit 18 oil and gouache paintings in a solo show titled “Enigma” at Gallerie Valerie in Crockett, from September 3rd through 26th in 2021.

The pieces are chiefly representational, even realistic, yet they often cloak twists or hidden meanings. Beneath their surfaces are darker truths, or riddles that invite further investigation. Paintings such as Anselm Kiefer’s Bathtubs, Arabesque, Leisurely, or The March of Time are imbued with an enigma.  The entire exhibition can also be viewed on my website  or on YouTube. Below snapshots of the installation offer a glimpse of this exhibition:
