Hey Everyone

Recently I began my candidacy for Master of Fine Arts at Montclair State University in New Jersey.  I am very close to NYC. Insane work load!

Also, this past summer I was given an apartment above a studio where I will be making work for the following summers in Gilbertsville New York.  (Near Oneonta and Norwich)  This location will soon be a thriving residency program.  

"Porosity" got a DD, awesome! my first one.  Thanks everyone!

Hey everyone.

I just finished my second commission.  It's called "CYCLE" It was given to me by the Syracuse Public Arts council.  I worked with the students of Henninger High School in Syracuse.  They came up with the designs of the ceramic tiles which I affixed to the top portion of the piece.

The Post Standard gave me a picture on the front page, underneath the debt ceiling headline and I got a HUGE pic in the CNY section with praise as well.  This is all very exciting!  I thought you should all see the online article.

I don't know how to put hyperlinks in these posts.

Anyways, now I am working on another piece that is similar to "Lucidity in Flight"  Steel is coming this monday :D  Then in September I am starting my MFA degree at Montclair State University with free tuition (graduate assistance-ship) and a stipend.   

Thanks everyone for following!  Keep in touch!

So I am all done with my undergraduate studies.  I had a wonderful time in college.  I am now applying to Northeastern University, Rochester Institute of Technology, Marywood University, and Montclair State.

While I wait to be settled in a metal studio I am making functional and decorative pottery at a local studio here in Syracuse.  I have not been unemployed since I was 16.  I now know why artists starve.  Thank god for friends and family otherwise I would be on the streets.  

My work will be my life, so I must keep working.  Thank you everyone for your support.  Deviant Art has been a big help.

I can't believe my undergrad era is coming to a close.  It all flew by so fast.  I am off to work on my own on large scale work.  I will have to be working without the company of professors and peers, it will be exhilarating and challenging.  Also I am applying to grad schools in areas I can't even begin to think about living in HAH.  Big cities? here I come?  

So much has happened.....

I am in a moment of surreal wonder

Thank you everyone for your support.  Katie, I love you with all my heart

Hello everyone, I just received funds to start my first commission.  It is a 19 foot tall sculpture.  It will be constructed of mild steel.  I am calling it "Lucid" because it is a dream come true. If you would like to see the model of it, it is on my main page right now.  Wish me luck!  Thanks to everyone for their ongoing inspiration and support.

Classes start monday.  I have my senior show this semester... I am preparing to spend my life in the studio.  I need motivation, and I am finding it in the love I have for Katie.  If society cant grant me promise for success, maybe she can.  Wish me luck.

My primary realm, is a place.
It's bathed in light, with unspeakable warmth.
Gifted to me, my soul
accepts her loving grace.

Secondary, yet expansive indeed
is my beloved second.
Another realm to protect
another place to adore.

and when I want it more
The third...comes crashing down.

My Primary realm thrives.
It is supple and soft,
Any ravenous thought of losing it
Chews acres across my heart.

My second realm loud and severe
Points my nose to bounty.
Points my body to drain

A devilish thing, my third realm.
Only there as a crutch,
Splits the shell of my universe
For me to behold true pain.

I want it most, I need it's cure.
A balance between my three realms
A ratio of calm inside my head.
I need something right, perfect, and pure!

I feel it, change is coming.

I have recently sold my two largest Pieces; "The Remains of Time" and "Spark" to some buyers in Gilbertsville NY.  They look great in their new settings and I am glad everything worked out.  Thanks to everyone for their support and good wishes.

I have decided to sell my work.  I want it to go to a new and more appreciative home.  I don't even care if I rip myself off, I just want people to love it the way I have.

I work at a fucking restaurant when I am not making art in college.  Isn't this counter productive?  I play music alone, I sketch to occupy my brain... and I browse deviant art in envy of all the fantastic work I see.  I see my girlfriend once a week if I am lucky.  I have ultimate respect for all artists out there and some day I wish to be among you earning a living from my art.  Thank you all for your inspiration...  My work will flow again shortly, for now I must earn some money at making food for the masses.  At least I am contributing to the tastes of fat America consuming grilled and fried portions large enough to feed an army for decades.

Art in academia is confusing.  What does an "A" tell a student?  What does an A- mean to the same student.  Does it reflect work ethics? Does it reflect actual knowledge gained?  Whatever...
Hello everyone!

My ceramic work "wine glasses" are for sale if anyone is interested.  I have 10 left.  These are my first sold artworks.
Hello everyone!

      I am interested in an issue.  This issue is on form.  When someone conceives a form with the intent to either: impose a specific message to the viewer, OR to let the viewers' mind roam "free."  Can an artist create an abstract form with no representation yet this form contains the same visual impact as a fully representational form, is this work equally commendable?
      Can the time spent on a mere gesture drawing have the same impact as the work of many masters before us?  Can it be true that the same visual education, skill level, intelligence, and merit can be seen in a mere mark of the form?  What would charivaggios steel sculptures look like? How would Michelangelo handle a camera?  I have been wondering this.
      Please respond with your thoughts.
I updated some photos of my work, they are much better in my opinion.  I changed some patinas on some of my sculptures recently.  My collection is growing.  feedback is appreciated.
art is fun! art is good! Everyone should have art in their lives!
