acrylic on canvas 54 x 42
I make custom canvases and painting installations. My pieces in this style are usually interpreted as landscapes, but turning the paintings upside down and sideways can reveal new symbols and hidden meanings. I work in the layering of colors. Most of my work is in acrylic on canvas. I’m concepting larger installations in stained glass and gels. The medium matters less to me than the subject and the design. I’d love to design a custom painting for your space.
Out of Austin and Portland, Land of the Living is firmly rooted in the blues tradition. But it’s breathing new life into the genre by incorporating Doom influenced guitar tones, Garage-style vocals, and more modern song subjects.
Kivett Bednar from Land of the Living and Eddie Steele from Entendre Entendre started jamming in late 2015, and The Pining Hearts officially became a band in March of 2016. The group just played sold-out shows at Alberta Street Pub and Twilight Cafe, and the next show is at Doug Fir Lounge. The originals coming out of the group are dance-y and upbeat, but in the same breath have a dark-surf vibe. An EP is currently in the works for a late 2016 release.
