YOWZA.The feature for this week is my diptych from the KNOCKOUT: Boxing Art show. These will be on view at the Compound Gallery in Oakland/Emeryville, CA from Sept 19th-Nov 1st. Opening reception is this saturday Sept 19th from 6-9pm.
I'm not a boxing enthusiast or much of a fan, but I do respect the sport. My intent was to display boxers in their most vulnerable, yet some may say prideful state, the post match. Looking at each portrait, it can go either way. Who won? Who lost? It could have been a draw. These will be on view along with over 15 other pieces from the featured artists.
Come see them in person starting this Saturday! Otherwise, it'll be up on the main page for the week. This week is almost filled with excitement, I'll explain more in Friday's post.
