This is the second group show I’m in for the year. I have two pixel popper pieces in it. The show is housed at the Therese A. Maloney Art Gallery in the Annunciation Center – College of Saint Elizabeth, Morristown NJ. Opening Reception is February 13, 4:30 – 7:00pm. See you there!

So this is my first big piece for the year – a 21″ x 21″ framed Golden fruit. The first in my “eye candy” (iCandy?) Pixel Poppers. A bit of a homage to brands and products that people obsessed with, get killed for, and stood in line for days just to be the first to get the “latest and greatest”. This one is made of 1600+ gold gelatin capsules, and was a lot of fun to make. I’m thinking of making her older rainbow colored sister next for an old school retro kick. I finished working on this on January 1st. Off to a great start!
