I made this series last winter while in Mt. Shasta, and never posted it on my website, until now. This is one of my favorite series. I love combining seemingly opposing elements of photography and sculpture with pastel color schemes and earth tones…and these two artists I felt had a surprising sense of kinship with each other that could rest well in a frame together. In both their work, I find a stoic brotherhood of sorts.
Hope you enjoy it and feel free to reach out to me for prints and follow my other artistic adventures on Instagram here @paraprose. Many thanks!
Here is a little series I made recently. I started with charcoal on paper and then added some digital coloring and layers to create some depth. This series is called “Angular Momentum”.
A physics term I still don’t fully understand (whoops) but to me represents the idea of keeping your momentum going despite a change in the angle of your path. Something I think we can all relate to, especially right now.
Recently I made a little BTS video showing me paint my wall at my MassArt graduate studio. I didn’t have much ink at the time, except for some etching ink and one tube of acrylic ink, and my fingers haha…so this is what I cam up with.
Enjoy! And stay on the look out for part 2 where I add more color to it 🙂
Here is a collection of some of my recent art. I like to work in collage, illustration, and mixed media. Occasionally I will blend my photographs (or old, archival photos from magazines) with my drawings, and use them as a backdrop and initial inspiration for a larger piece.
My usual goal is to make art that makes people think, laugh, and reflect. Surrealism and constructivism play big influences in all my work. The line between formality and the absurd has always interested me, and I like to play in that zone. When in that zone, I seek to tell stories of the outcasts, oddballs, and loners of our world as well as my imaginary one.
