I am very proud to announce the opening of Architectonic Lyricism at Northern Kentucky University Art Galleries. Architectonic Lyricism, is a retrospective of the first fifteen years of my career. The pieces featured explore my evolving interest in reinventing the geometries in both man-made and natural environments with various themes, including music and its correlation to the visual compositions and creative spirit. From my earlier large scale abstract drawings, followed by my exploration of the urban cityscape, to recent paintings depicting rhythmic movements in nature, this show highlights my past influences and future aspirations. The show opens to the public August 18th and the artist reception will be on September 4th from 5 – 7 pm. To RSVP for the event follow this link.
I would like to give special thanks to writer Karen Chambers, and The Cincinnati Enquirer for including me in their “10 who are Advancing in the Arts” article. It’s an honor to make the cut. To read the article and check out other well deserving indivdiuals who are sure to make some waves in the new year follow this link .
Paul's Diamond by Diamond Snowden and Cedric Michael Cox
Working with Visionaries and Voices artist Diamond Snowden for Double Vision II ,was an absolute pleasure. As a studio coordinator at V&V, I have always shared with Diamond my experiences working in my studio and the ritual of painting. The Visionaries and Voices Double Vision project was a chance for both Diamond and I to collaborate and understand each other’s process. Side by side in my studio and at V&V we planed and executed this painting together pushing, pulling and refining architectonic imagery that referenced allegories in music and urban text design and pattern. The piece “Paul’s Diamond” is named after Paul Klee. Like Mr. Klee, Diamond also had an influence on me. He not only created a design that celebrated both of our interest in representational abstraction, he also gave me new insight on a recent piece that I am currently working on. Come out and see other great collaborations of V&V artist with other local artist at Double Vision on April 23rd at Memorial Hall. Continue reading →
