Mentors Exhibit at Loyola University

     I had the pleasure to exhibit a sample of my new work at my undergraduate alma mater Loyola University this past week.  The exhibition is up through January, so if you are in New Orleans and would like to see the piece below, check it out.  The centennial exhibit marks the 100th birthday of Loyola and also gave me the opportunity to show work with some of my art parents like Gerald Cannon  alongside super talented graduates like Analia Saban.   I also got to check in with my high school art teacher, Randy Asprodites.  Check them out.

Sabbatical Report, Studio finding traction

 Image

                        As many of you know I am on Sabbatical for the Fall of 2012.  I am working with a terrific intern, Bri Chesler.  Currently I am continuing my work on the house panels,       experimenting with grout drawing and inlay techniques to go along with the tile and distressed wallpaper on the louon and foam boards.  The two bodies of work that are getting the most attention are the Bath Fragment works and the grout drawings.

                        I’ll post images of some of the new pieces as they near conclusion.  Here are a few in progress shots.  Brett
