Coming up this March 2014: "Jack Lake Redux" at Staple Goods Collective, New Orleans. Opens March 8 at 6 pm, continuing through April 6th. Gallery hours - 12 to 5 pm Saturdays & Sundays. Artist talk Sunday March 9, 3:00 pm.

These evolving works combine a number of threads and themes that I’ve worked with in various forms: signage, billboards, Motel & road culture, itinerant travellers, spastic chronologies and past lives. The title contains a nom de plum that I have used often, having discovered it scrawled, with notes and dates, on the interior of a demolished wall in a renovation project. I’m trying to pick up the pieces anecdotally to tell the tale of Jack Lake’s progress, fantasies, premonitions and regrets.
