L’art fantastique Paris 2009

This Sunday, Anja Brinkmann and I will be flying out to Paris to once again meet with our Japanese friends that I exhibited with last year in Kyoto. We have both been invited to exhibit in Paris with the IFAA.

The International Fantastic Art Association (IFAA) is an artist group dedicated to bringing together and gaining more exposure for Japanese Fantastic Artists. The group was founded by the artist Shoji Tanaka and has so far exhibited in Kyoto and Tokyo with international guest artists.

THE CRYPTOPEDIA: A Dictionary of the Weird, Strange, and Downright Bizarre

My artwork makes an appearance in a new publication:

THE CRYPTOPEDIA: A Dictionary of the Weird, Strange, and Downright Bizarre
by Bram Stoker Award winner Jonathan Maberry and David F. Kramer

Citadel Press, $16.95 / 320 pages / ISBN-13: 978-0806528199

At the edge of the known world, demons, monsters, and baffling phenomena abound. To help you navigate this mystery-shrouded realm where the supernatural mingles with the paranormal, fright-guides Jonathan Maberry and David Kramer present their indispensable follow-up to Vampire Universe. Witty and comprehensive, The Cryptopedia divides the otherworldly into chapters that explain the inexplicable, from angels to poltergeists to UFOs and more. Leaving no Philosopher's Stone unturned, the authors decode occult symbols, demystify the art of fortune telling, and discuss the myriad strange and bizarre forces at work in the universe. Illustrated throughout, this is an invaluable guide to the Larger World. Don't leave this plane of existence without it!

Metamorphosis - 50 Contemporary Surreal, Fantastic and Visonary Artists

It's here! Metamorphosis! Its finally emerged from its chrysalis in the form of a Hard Cover Art Book with a Dust Jacket, 112 A4 gloss pages, with 122 High res plates.

The book features a number of well known artists such as Alex Grey, Chet Zar, Andrew Gonzalez, and Ernst Fuchs.

The best part is, I'm among them!

I recieved my copy two weeks ago, and it looks just beautiful. Jon Beinart has done a superb job on the book. It looks every bit professional. I've spoken to a number of the other artists included in the book and they are all just as equally excited. It is truely inspirational to see so many wonderful artists creating works of such quality and power.

Metamorphosis shows us how wide and varied the visions are of the artists working in this vein of art.

More detailed information about the book can be found on the website I built, beinart.org/shop/metamorphosis.php

Intent

Here's a second image that I've posted in the last week or so. Further evidence of my build up to creatively frenetic year after last years creative hiatus. This piece is one I had begun in 2006, but have only now returned to. Since travelling to and fro between Berlin and London, my thoughts have often returned to my rolls of canvas that I put in storage after I dissolved my studio. It was a disappointing process, but in stripping my canvases and rolling them up, I was storing hope for myself, that there would be a future time and space to paint again. And that time has begun.

Return to the Source

I spent a hectic but thoroughly enjoyable time in Vienna over December, staying with my good friend and colleague Amanda Sage (www.amandasage.com). She was very gracious to allow me the use of her studio, and so for the first time in almost a year, I could dabble in paint again. Ah how I've missed it. Now the itch has been scratched, there is much more to be done. Included is one of the works I began. It is still a work in progress. Stay tuned.
