salve, citizens!

it is with no small amount of pride that i make a much-delayed announcement concerning the new solo exhibition of my work.

this exhibit, entitled crossing the rubicon, will take place in toronto at gallery 1313 in their “process” gallery. proprætorian works, new and old, will be on display from october 16 through october 27.

i have decided to call this show crossing the rubicon not as a proclamation of civil war, as the historical act signified, but as a proclamation – a throwing down of a gauntlet that proclaims this war i wage is an “all or nothing” situation. and in the words of GAIVS IVLIVS CÆSAR, who was the original crosser of the rubicon “alea iacta est.” [latin: the die is cast]

the gallery is located at 1313 queen street west, in toronto. an opening reception for the entire gallery will be from 8-10pm on october 17 and is by invitation only, so if you wish to attend, let me know.

a grand day at atelier proprætoria! i hope to see you there.

“it is accomplished….”

salve, citizens.

i am pleased to announce that last week, my newest piece was completed.

this drawing, entitled edictum I – duro in umbræ sancto, is an unusual piece. i am pleased with the result, but something about it feel peculiar to me. it’s almost as though this is, in some way, a further refinement and evolution of my style into something more uniquely my own, and yet with hints of more classical influences like bosch and brueghel the elder.

this piece, however, i am keeping under wraps until the entrenchment show this upcoming friday, so if you want to see it before next week, you’ll need to make your way out to the button factory in waterloo, ontario on friday night. otherwise, keep your eyes here or on the facebook page for images next week.
