Dirty Thoughts, 6 paintings, 4″x6″ each, acrylic on panel. 2014
I’m showing my sextet of paintings, Dirty Thoughts, in the Super Naughty Show, at the relocated Super Wonder Gallery this weekend.
After three months of renovations, The Super Wonder Gallery has opened in an old supermarket on Bloor St. W. It’s a great exhibition space, and a permanent one, capable of hosting the mammoth group shows Super Wonder is famous for. The grand opening is this Friday and Saturday night. Tickets are $10.

Double Grand Opening Night!

Dirty Thoughts, my new painting series, is hanging at the Super Wonder Gallery until Friday. These six small panels seem innocent at first (the drawings are based on an Edwardian Snakes & Ladders game I bought at a garage sale), but each of the characters has an itch that needs scratching.
Perfect for the guest bathroom, these panels are priced at $200 each.
The Super Wonder Gallery (99 Sudbury, Toronto) is open this Wednesday and Thursday, 4 to 8 p.m., closing party on Friday, 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.

I have painted six small works on panel for next Friday’s Super Naughty Show. In each of the paintings, an innocent-looking person daydreams with the subject of their daydream floating over his or her head. Rendered in the earlier 20th century-style of my Snake or Ladder? series, Dirty Thoughts are delightful yet titillating. The preview below only shows the thinkers, not their thoughts. To see what goes on inside their dirty minds, come to the Super Naughty Show.
