At a recent visit back home to Illinois over the holidays I got a chance to visit the David Adler Center where I got my early art training. They asked me to do an interview about my experiences there for their website! I was honored. Enjoy!

My piece “Middle Passage” was included in this great article by Brian Slattery in the New Haven Independent on the “How with this Rage shall Beauty hold a Plea?” show at Kehler Liddel Gallery (April 26-May 27).
“It takes a second to get your bearing. There’s a woman gazing out at you from Eric March’s canvas, stoic, angry, accusing. As your eye takes in the full image, you see that the funereal flowers aren’t below the woman; they’re floating on the waves lapping a sandy store. You, the viewer, aren’t standing upright. You’re floating in the air just over the waves, looking down. The woman is under the waves, looking up.
The piece is called Middle Passage, and it’s probably the first thing you’ll see when you walk into the Kehler Liddell Gallery on Whalley Avenue for “How With This Rage Shall Beauty Hold a Plea?” a 53-artist exhibit about art and political outrage running now through May 27.”
My painting “Middle Passage” will be part of a new exhibition “How with this Rage Shall Beauty Hold a Plea?” at Kehler Liddell Gallery (873 Whalley Ave, New Haven, CT).
The opening reception is Sunday, April 29 from 3-6 pm with a panel discussion at 2pm. The title of this show is a quote from Shakespeare and is premised on the question “What is the point of making beautiful things, or of cherishing the beauty of the past, when ugliness runs rampant?” (Alex Ross, 2017 New Yorker magazine). The show runs through May 27, 2018.
