I had the honor of having my work, Get Rich or Die Voting, selected for New Waves, an annual juried exhibition at Virginia MOCA that showcases the vast array of artistic talent found in Virginia. The show was juried by Cay Sophie Rabinowitz, Director of OSMOS, a network of independent editorial and curatorial platforms based in New York. Out of 378 artists who submitted I not only made the cut of 30 artists but I also received an Honorable Mention. I have been trying to get into this show for five years and along that way I could have very easily tried to change my work to try to get in or guess what people wanted to see but I didn’t. I stuck with my point of view and continue to do the work that I want to see in the world and, in this case, it paid off.
Thanks again MOCA, Cay Sophie, and especially my wife who continues to support me and my work. Now back to painting… where the hell did I put my cadmium yellow?
