  • In July, the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia acquired my 2008 painting “How Soon Is Now?” for their permanent collection. The painting will debut this fall in the exhibition “Flirting With Abstraction” which runs from September 25 through January 8, 2012.

    In 2008, the artist Brent Hallard published an interview with me that included a discussion of this painting. The painting was also exhibited in New York in 2008 and in 2010.
