Narrative Painting Project

Thank you for being a part of this experiment where I will send a painting with a short story/thought behind it every few weeks.

I have longed for a way shine a light on what happens after the presentation or what doesn’t get seen.  Not a “blog” or even, perhaps, a fully-formed thought.  But a handkerchief of a thought, something i might leave behind while riding to where ever– a postcard from the interior– ah that’s what I’ll call it…an image and some words, that’s all.

EXHIBITION “Disclosure” at Durden & Ray, Los Angeles

DISCLOSURE: CONFESSIONS FOR MODERN TIMES

Jan 5 – Feb 2, 2019
Opening reception:
Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019,
7-10 p.m

Artists: Kim Abeles, Jorin Bossen, Kimberly Brooks, Joe Davidson, Dani Dodge, Donald Fodness, Kathryn Hart, Debby and Larry Kline, Conchi Sanford, Ed “Celso” Tahaney and Steven Wolkoff, Curators: Dani Dodge and Alanna Marcelletti

Durden and Ray will celebrate the start of 2019 with an exhibition that allows people to cleanse their souls through the art of disclosure. January is about cleansing the past and making new starts. But since the early 1990s, independent polls have shown the rapid growth of those without a religious affiliation. So where do people go to confess, if not to a higher power? Maybe an art gallery? Dani Dodge and Alanna Marcelletti decided to play devil’s advocates and create a space where the participants can disclose transgressions and progress unfettered into 2019 through art.
