Cherry Avenue is a collectively organized, community-based art project that brings people together. It's cross-disciplinary, generates artist-public interaction, exists in public space and a model for other creative community efforts. [more]

For the Let There Be Light exhibition, I teamed up with multimedia guru Joe Lawlor to create a looping video, projected on a 10x12 tarp in the Virginia woods. [Photos | Video]

storyline Story|Line comes to Monticello Road
It's as if my two best friends have gotten married: my favorite youth program came to the street that inspired my latest art project. [more]
   
Scratch Borads scratch boards
Small drawings I make by inking a piece of mat board, drawing a background with oil pastel, then scratching through the pastel with a needle to reveal the ink underneath. go
   
Sources & Inspirations sources and inspirations
My process starts with photography. But when I collected these images for inclusion in my exhibition, something larger than process emerged: an artist's vision. go
   
Image the little prints
This set of eight two-inch square prints fits into a hole in my body of work—small, affordable edition work. go
   
dream catchers
My new work adds a new element: the interface between the natural world and human detritus.
   
love knots
My new drawings find sensuous connections between trees and the Earth that nourishes them.
   
chairs of bryant park
The series of drawings based on the chairs of Bryant Park explore the intimacy and alienation that define our experience as social beings.
   
venerablis
This new piece, created especially for the Law Library at the College of William and Mary exemplifies the tree series' combination of calm intensity. next

woods
I've been a very bad boy when it comes to updating my website. Still, if you want a sense of my tree series, go here, here, or here.
   
citymouse, countrymouse
My new blog is inspired by one of my new drawings. It's written in two voices: the side of me that loves the City like crazy and the one that wants to get the Hell out.

interactions
The recent exhibition at Migration: a Gallery combined my chair drawings with the canopies and tree portraits. I've never had a show look so great and full of curatorial surprises. Kudos to Laura and Rob for doing a great job! gallery info | review | blog
   
photosgalore
At last, photos from our summer in Virginia, my trip to Burning Man, and a sneak preview of Niobe, my long-awaited first outdoor stone carving.

Thanks to everyone who visited my recent show of marble reliefs at
Figureworks.
Positive and accurate
review in NYArts Online
   
stool sample
Two long-time friends collectors commissioned a pair of stools like the Pompeii series—only better!
   
paperwork
If you liked my reliefs, you'll love my new series of related block prints—colorful and affordable.
   
in edition...
No longer just marble, now I'm also doing reliefs in bronze, like this one.
   
keeping culture current
At long last, I've completed my portal site, culturecurrent.com. Culturecurrent is larger than just this site, which features my artwork. The new portal lets you visit all of my recent sites, this one included. Some of them are getting some real buzz. Take a look
   
Navarro award
The Justice Center commissioned a marble award that is designed to pass from one recipient to the next.
   
collecting on a budget
We've finally released the inaugural issue of Conversations on Collecting, a new community-driven e-newsletter for art collectors and their champions. In this installment, collectors share some tips for bringing a much-desired work of art into their price range.
   
voice somewhat in the dark
The Village Voice cited my studio as evidence that artists are flocking to the Bushwick neighborhood. That's great, except the studio's not technically in Bushwick at all...
   
critter
part cootie, part kitty, part kid, my new sculpture defies easy classification
   
the city that never sleeps
I've embarked on a new series that combines long-exposure photographs with text observations in a series of folio pages about New York by night. These works, beautiful objects in themselves, will eventually be presented in either an artist-book, or in a portfolio of limited-edition prints. Preview the series
