"Straddling the Line Between Abstraction and Representation"
Art that reveals how an artist’s abstract forms may subtly suggest recognizable forms or how ordinary objects can serve as a point of departure for an artist’s abstract vision. The works encompass a variety of oil and acrylic paintings with some also incorporating mixed media. Whether on the abstract or representational side of the line, all engage the viewer with their color, composition and other points of visual interest.
Exhibition Dates: 10/16/2021 -11/20/2021
Opening Reception: 10/16/21, 18.00-22.00

I'm a big proponent of a Waldorf education and pleased to be a sponsor for the 7th Annual Santa Fe Waldorf Wolfpack Trail Run, to be held on 26.September.2021:
After a 6 month hiatus due to relocation, the new studio is up and ready to be abused, dirtied, trashed and splattered in the quest to create beauty.
April 1 - 30, 2021
More details to follow on this upcoming exhibition. The painting, "It's Almost The Same As Being Innocent" has been selected for inclusion.
I'm honored to be included in this exhibition with the piece, Little Miss Moxie:
THEME: What attracts you to paint a subject? Is it the light at that moment, the expression at that moment or the emotion you feel at that moment? We are accepting works that are inspired by a moment in time, including still lifes, portraits and landscapes.

Oil painters know that paint can take up to 6 months to dry - sometimes longer. My family will be undertaking our next adventure this June and relocating out of Seattle, which requires me to close the studio and put a hold on painting.
Already I am missing the smells and wonders of oils yet sketching aplenty in advance of hitting the ground running once I set up my new studio. Whereas my output this year will be reduced, I am extremely excited for the infinite possibilities that will inspire my work in Santa Fe.
My sincere prayers and wishes of good health to all as we guide ourselves out of the pandemic.
Please visit the link below to this upcoming online juried exhibit, for which I'm honored to be selected.
THEME: How do you define "Fresh Art"? Something new and different, new to one's experience, not encountered before, or a new approach to your art. Artwork that is forward or bold, expressive, engaging, stimulating, creative, infused with imagination - what new directions are you taking with your art? Show us.
EXHIBITION DATES: November 7, 2020 through January 16, 2021. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this will be an online exhibition.
RECEPTION: A virtual ZOOM reception will be held on Sunday, November 15, 2020 at 5pm (PST). Details and the link to the ZOOM will be released well in advance.
Each year, I make a point to give back to the community in the form of donating work to various causes or organizations that have my personal interest or conviction.
2020 is a particularly challenging time for non-profit organizations to survive and succeed in continuing to deliver to their constituents. I'm happy to contribute to the following auctions this year, and would invite you to explore how each serves their respective communities:
Coyote Central: coyotecentral.org/
Coyote sparks creativity in young people, putting tools in their hands to build skills and forge their futures.
Symphony Tacoma: symphonytacoma.org/
Inspiring audiences with live musical experiences that transcend tradition, Symphony Tacoma has been a vital part of Tacoma’s cultural landscape for more than 70 years.
Santa Fe Waldorf School: www.santafewaldorf.org/
I'm very excited to begin supporting this wonderful school in Santa Fe, where my family will be relocating mid-2021.
One piece, Luchadora (2020), has been selected for this online juried show from bG Gallery in Santa Monica, CA. The show brings together a collection of work from international artists bridging the line between representation and abstraction.
Kenneth Susynski (American, b. 1965) presents a unique, hybrid style of figurative expressionism blended with the abstract in narrative compositions that stress an interpretation of beauty, with a hint of wit, exploring combinations of historical and contemporary cultural themes.
