Artist Registry

The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online platform for emerging and under-recognized artists to share images and information about their respective practices. The Registry seeks to create a context for artists who have yet to benefit from wider critical, curatorial or commercial support. To be eligible, artists cannot be affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City.

I have been living as an expat American fine artist in the Republic of Korea since 2015.   

In 2020 I stopped painting entirely.  It was not until January 2021, after Joe Biden had officially won the election, that I was able to begin getting my game back.  This new set, WHO AM I? consisting of 36 paintings, was completed by July 15.  They are all self portraits.  Please visit to see the fulll set, all 36 shades of me, plus videos of works in progress.  Many of the larger paintings were executed in a the large, rented Daejeon Gallery, along with sound installation artist Wil Pertz, as part of the live painting and music event titled AMORPHOUS.  That is where the videos were shot.
