Pleased to be invited to contribute a painting to this exhibition in a city that I consider my hometown on this (Northamerican) continent.

An interview about my show is here:
The Essay by Olga Viso and an interview by gallery owner Giorgio Furioso with artists Maria de los Angeles Rodríguez Jiménez and Hartmut Austen about our show titled 2Horizon(te)s remains accessible through this link:
“Ebenda” is the German word for “Ibidem”, latin for “Just there” or “At the very same place”. I use the title for its shortness, literal playfulness – it also relates to an idea of place, presence and absence, as well as, a reference to our experiences of the year 2020. My paintings visually reflect on the events of the year without illustrating them.

In January, I had a pleasure to collaborate on a series of lithographic prints with Andrew Mockler from Jungle Press
An edition of 15 variable lithographic prints plus 8 artist prints were printed by Andrew Mockler at Jungle Press from
January 8-11, 2020. Each print is on white Arches paper in the size of 30.25 x 22.5 in with slight variations except prints XII/XV and XV/XV, which are on light Rives Grey.
If you are interested in purchasing a print, please contact me for images of the complete set and pricing or download the PDF with images of all prints.
Some of the funds from the sale of these prints will go towards the production of an artist publication highlighting works of the past 10 years and is projected to be published in late 2021 or early 22.

Good Weather is honored and excited to participate in FAIR with a four-part presentation of paintings by Hartmut Austen and Ron Ewert.
As a way to honor the intrinsic camaraderie of the initiative, Good Weather is presenting four paintings that highlight the meaningful connection which has developed within our program between artists Hartmut Austen and Ron Ewert. Both artist have presented two solo exhibitions over the past six years with Good Weather: first at our original location in North Little Rock (Ron Ewert’s I would like to see what happens by Ron Ewert and Hartmut Austen’s Here r more), and second as a set of shows at Atlanta Contemporary as part of the On-Site series (Hartmut Austen’s Blurred Vision is just one of the Symptoms and Ron Ewert’s I'm getting too old for this shirt) by invitation from Daniel Fuller.
The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is pleased to present FAIR, built in partnership with Artlogic. FAIR is a new art fair initiative designed to be entirely online, function cooperatively, and act as a benefit for NADA’s community of galleries, nonprofits and artists.
FAIR offers an alternative profit-sharing model, structured to facilitate mutual support within the art community and provide revenue to each of its participants during a time in which galleries have temporarily closed their physical locations. A percentage from each sale made from FAIR will directly benefit all participating galleries and artists. In addition, a percentage of each sale will go towards supporting NADA for their efforts in producing FAIR, their continued work as an organization for art galleries, through this time of crisis and beyond.
Each participating gallery will present a series of artworks over four-weeks with the opportunity to share new artworks each week, May 20 – June 21, 2020.
Week 1: May 20–26, 2020
Week 2: May 27–Jun 2, 2020 (Live on May 27 at 11 am CT)
Week 3: Jun 3–9, 2020 (Live on Jun 3 at 11 am CT)
Week 4: Jun 10–21, 2020 (Live on June 10 at 11 am CT)
