New home for Neuntoter

Nuentoter-Graham-480px

My four-panel painting Neuntoter has found a buyer. I hung the the painting of a shrike displaying its kills on a lightning-struck tree in Graham Christison’s home last night. Graham’s rich red walls add a new element to bold painting.

Completed in 2007, The six-foot square Neuntoter is the largest painting I have done, and one of the most visually-arresting. It’s a bit strange to have it out of the studio, but now there’s a large space to be filled with new work.

Christine and I finished up the giant heads and accompanying costumes and accessories last week. We opened Swizzle Studio’s front door to show the finished foam sculptures to our friends and neighbours.

The Head Table will come to life on Saturday, November 22, at STRUTT, the jaw-dropping wearable art show in St. Catherines, Ontario.
