PAINTING | “Binoculars”

Posted in painting

Throughout the course of last year I had some fun experimenting with metal and decided to start a collection of smaller paintings made out of wood and steel as a supplement to my larger Retrograde Series. My goal is to release 1 or 2 of these a month throughout the year, and this is the initial piece in this new collection.

“Binoculars” was created with oil and acrylic on hand-chiseled plywood, and stenciled enamel on oxidized steel. The painting consists of three sections held together by 1/8 inch thick steel brackets. The back is stained, waxed and includes a keyhole slot cut out of maple for immediate hanging.

PAINTING | Gorilla 10th Anniversary

Posted in painting

The Gorilla Sticker recently turned 10 years old and to commemorate the time gone by I thought it fitting to do a new painting of my orange partner in crime.

BIG GORILLA THANKS
In 2003 I packed up a Uhaul and headed West on a one-way trip with my dog and shoebox full of newly designed stickers. As I crossed the country I let the orange beast loose into the world for the first time, leaving him at nearly every stop as I meandered for two weeks from Milwaukee to San Diego. A decade later the Orange Gorilla now lives all over the world in one form or another (maniacal laugh). That of course couldn’t have happened without you, so a big shout out to the Gorilla Nation for all the ape-tastic support over the past decade. You’ve helped keep alive the dream of seeing the world overrun by an army of apes…or something like that. Many thanks. -Jimmy

PAINTING | “Rolo Retrograde”

The Retrograde Series is a group of multi-paneled paintings that stand as an exploration of the memories, questions, sights, sounds, and tastes of my youth, and their juxtaposition against each other, and the world around me decades later. “Rolo Retrograde” is the continuation/evolution of that series.
