The final show at THIS Gallery in Los Angeles…


Here is the painting I made for the show.  It’s based on a very special piece from my art collection – a photo transfer Justin Van Hoy made using a photograph taken by his father.

Studio Visit : Justin Waugh

04/29/2013 Comments Off on Studio Visit : Justin Waugh


I’ve known Justin Waugh for quite awhile now.  He and I shared an apartment/studio back in Charleston, SC 1998-200 and have kept close contact over the years since.  While down in LA this past weekend, Jennifer and I finally got a chance to see his studio and check out some of the things he’s been making.  I always enjoy how he opens the gate between the living and working space.

Justin will have work in a group show which opens May 4th in Los Angeles at Elephant Art Space.

For additional info, check out his WEBSITE.
