ARTIST STATEMENT: I’m very excited to announce that my exhibition “Statecraft” will open @chriswhitegallery on September 9. This group of paintings has never been seen together in Delaware. My latest run of hangoutology doodles will also be on view in the lower level. These doodles on U.S. Capitol stationery mark my time through the early pandemic and serve as a meditation practice of sorts. The trance and ritual of these works hope to tap a magic propelling our civic imagination forward!
