New Robotics Art & International Paintings To Show at Columbus Museum of Art

New Robotics Art & International Paintings To Show at Columbus Museum of Art

“Absolute: Thread” at the Columbus Museum of Art

It is my great pleasure to announce the long-awaited opening of Greater Columbus, an exhibition featuring works by myself and a small group of outstanding artists based in central Ohio. The exhibition represents a wonderful partnership between the Columbus Museum of Art and the Greater Columbus Arts Council. This is my second exhibition at the museum representing this generous award by the Arts Council. To say that I’m grateful is an understatement. Last year’s museum exhibition in conjunction with a 3-month artist residency in Dresden, Germany are among my most pleasurable achievements as an artist.

“The Circadian Machine” on display at the Columbus Museum of Art

A jury of distinguished arts professionals working outside the region awarded Individual Artist Fellowships to Molly Jo Burke & Nathan Gorgen, Nick Larsen,  Laura Larson, and Christopher Burk. Greater Columbus features their work alongside myself and Chaz O’Neil, who were selected for additional residencies in Dresden, Germany as part of the Arts Council’s Artist Exchange Program.

I have selected 5 pieces for the exhibit including the special debut of an interactive light and sound sculpture. Additionally, there are 3 paintings made during my residency in Germany and another larger painting with international ties to Cuba.

A reception has not been planned for the foreseeable future. However, the exhibition is open for in-person experience and we are actively adding new virtual programs for the public. The museum, art council, and I welcome each one of you to visit and support artwork that is culturally viable and globally relevant. Please enjoy the image gallery below and the in-person exhibition if you can.

New Painting For “Columbus In Cuba | Cuba In Columbus” Exhibition

“Absolute: Triumph”
“Absolute: Triumph”: Oil paint on maple. 32 1/4” x 41 5/8”

Absolute: Triumph is my newest (and largest) piece in this series. It was recently delivered to the Columbus in Cuba | Cuba in Columbus exhibition. This show represents an unprecedented, multi-event, multi-venue group of exhibitions showcasing the work of artists from central Ohio and Cuba. In April 2019, five Columbus artists were among the 200 international artists selected to show work in the renowned 13th Havana Biennial in Matanzas, Cuba. An additional 34 Columbus artists showed their work alongside art from Cuban artists as part of a collateral Biennial exhibition, ConnectArt, in Matanzas. From October 1 to November 15, 2019, artwork from the 39 central Ohio artists who exhibited in Cuba, work from additional Columbus artists, and Cuban artists work will be on display at art institutions, galleries, and public venues throughout Columbus as part of Cuba in Columbus.


Shades of translucent dark green accentuate the patterns of grain in the wood, reminiscent of a topographical map. A painted white cloud looks like a paper cutout with 6 blue strings dangling down. Over that, a red/orange thread hangs and makes a sharp turn. It outlines a distinct pattern on its way to a large origami boat. This pattern is a familiar motif pulled from the rooflines and archways of many of the old buildings in Havana. A berried shrub seemingly grows from the bow of the origami boat. 

This is the sister piece to Absolute: Frequency, a piece that was exhibited during the Havana Biennial earlier this year. Read about it here. Absolute: Frequency stayed in Cuba and is slated to part of the permanent collection in a Contemporary Arts Center in Matanzas, Cuba. As you can imagine, transporting the work from America to Cuba was not easy. The original piece was designed as a triptych in case there was a need to disassemble the painting for more compact travel purposes. The new work adapted a similar triptych form, which permitted me to transport the nearly 4 ft wide wood painting in a backpack between the workshop and my studio. I’m excited and honored to be part of such a multi-cultural partnership. Please check out my work and the works of so many other amazing American and Cuban artists.

On a beautifully crisp fall evening, friends and family gathered at the Galerie Raskolnikow to view “Sphere Out Of Play”.  The support from the community was gracious, with the crowds pouring out the gallery doors, down the steps, and out of the building! The work I’ve chosen to place in the show is a culmination of my 3-month residency in Germany.

As my time here comes to a close, I’m warmly reflecting on the many new friends and memories that I have made. For those who may have missed the exhibition or simply wish to relive it, the following gallery is a capturing of my artwork and the wonderfully packed vernissage. A special thank you goes to hours of tireless work from the gallerist Iduna Böhning at the Galerie Raskolnikow, funding & support from the combined excellence of the Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen & Greater Columbus Arts Council, the Office of Culture And Heritage Dresden,  and guest introduction by Dr. med. Klaus Nicolai. A very heartfelt thank you goes to my super supportive friends and family in the states and my host family in Germany. Martin & Heidi… you are the heart and soul of my wonderful experiences here in Dresden. Thank you!
