This upcoming Saturday, 13 May, marks one month working on my new painting series Remade Portraits. These paintings are overpaintings of some of my select portrait photographs from over space and time, brought together for a show in Miami Beach. The painting subjects include the Balkans, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Egypt, and Thailand and span 2005-2016. Each painting has a special story behind it based my impressions when I photographed the subjects. I will include the original black and white photographs.
This event will be hosted at Miami Beach's Strega Gastropub by awesome owner Rossana Torchia, including a great selection of Italian wines, delicious Italian cuisine, and live music from the World Troubadours. We are pleased to announce that this night will also include a fundraising event by indigenous artist Wayne Smoke, who will auction one of his original paintings and the proceeds will go to support water protectors.
Bring your family and your friends, this should be a great evening out, with yummy food and fabulous entertainment! Venue address and phone number below:
