A review, by DeWitt Cheng, of my 2007 solo show "Silence and Distance", at the late Charles Campbell Gallery:

This never made it to print, but turned up recently--I believe it was intended to be published in Art Ltd but scheduling got screwed up.  Anyway, I think it's an eloquent description of the work.  Better late than never!  Click here to read the review in .pdf format.

 

     
           
           
           
           
           
 

The 75th Crocker-Kingsley:
California’s Biennial

January 10 – February 6, 2009

I'm proud to announce that my recent painting, "Spring Day", was included in this prestigious annual juried show put on by the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. For more information, go to

http://www.crockerartmuseum.org/kingsley/index.html

Victoria Dalkey's review in the Sacramento Bee had some kind words for my painting, "Spring Day":

"...As one might expect of juror Bishop, the sculptor who made the once-controversial fox railing around the balcony of the Galleria, there are a number of strong three-dimensional pieces in the show. I liked best Maxwell Stolkins' painterly reclining ceramic heads installed in the entryway to the library, Sole Grant's ceramic landscape "Main Street," which is reminiscent of Robert Arneson's Alice street tableaux though done in earthy red clay, and George Jercich's perspective-altering giant mousetrap made of wood, steel, blown glass and graphics.

On the other hand, there aren't a lot of strong paintings in the show, although Anna Efanova's "Transformation," Rogelio Manzo's expressive "Day One," and Gage Opdenbrouw's nostalgic "Spring Day" stood out. Despite the drawbacks of the show, it is free this year, courtesy of the library...."
