Main Art Gallery Suggestivism features over fifty contemporary artists whose work is inherently ambiguous, and organic in process. Curator Nathan Spoor believes they follow the ideals of "Suggestivism." The term Suggestivism in art was first used in the late nineteenth century describing the organic process of making art, the loose mark-making, and the ambiguous narrative. Early modern art can be seen as examples of Suggestivism. However, Spoor's contemporary examples begin with the organic process and follow through with ambiguous narratives, but the artwork is tightly rendered, and illustrative.

Conceptually speaking, the term suggestivism refers to the ability of an individual to pursue their purpose with an amplified understanding and sensitivity. The artists involved represent precisely this - a wave of purpose, working within the more fluid aspects of narrative or figurative arenas. Through the mere power of suggestion, the magic is transferred from one to another, engaging the world at large from the most vivid and evocative of visual realms. - Nathan Spoor, Curator

My first silkscreen poster is only $30 and its 18x24. edition of 140.

Even though I did a few (inkjet) posters for my friend Sharon Van Etten a while back, this is my first actual silk screened concert poster. I'm super excited about it. It's from Circa Survive's NYC show at Iriving Plaza this past November.

-New Year, Mondays.

Nothing like good ol' fashioned structure.

It Happens to be Monday, so I'm gonna start the whole every Monday post this 2011. Totally butchered last year with the updates.

Here's some sketchbook pages drawn while stuck at JFK Airport last week.

the "*" notes:"Also slept, ate tuna melt, did drawing a few pages back, drank two bottles of water, coffee."

This is the drawing from a few pages back.

Slowly drawn mass.

Day 2 at airport No Dice.
