hmmm. hmmm?

You too can own a painting

Ah, the ever-changing dynamics of the ecosystem shared by Art and the Internet.  This has come up in every peer conversation, every artist statement, proposal and grant application I’ve written this month.  Think I’ll write an essay about it & post it here.

But this is not my purpose right now.  I’ve been doing some house cleaning on my blog site, and noticed to my dismay that there is no post devoted to the sale of my paintings.  This is an incredible thing. When asked about my current explorations as a visual artist, how can I send people here if they need to dig through seven years of musings just to find out what is available for purchase?

Good grief.

Here it is, then.  The November 27, 2015 post of all paintings currently available from my studio (work from 2001 to last week).  To see past work that’s sold, surf through the gallery to the right of this post.  There you will find photo reference, promo shots and visual art from the past 15+ years.  Eventually I will dig up the older digital archives that go back to 1975, but for now we shall celebrate the present moment!  Each piece is published under the title of the show it was in, with reference to blog process work, or a brief description.

Please note the distortion in size – an internet specialty.  Some of these pieces are quite large, and those are the ones that appear smaller.  The smallest also appears to be the largest.  If you’d like a studio tour of these so you can see them in person, come on over to the open house on December 5 (10-4, Saturday, third floor collective at 1190 2nd Avenue East [enter through 2nd Ave. door), or write to me at keirartworks@gmail.com  – I’d be happy to set up a time to show them.

Anyone interested in owning any of these pieces should also know that I LOVE instalment payments, even over a year. Really – I just love them.

Enjoy.
