(This is where my sculpture works have been exhibited, as opposed to having one port try and show it all, you know, my photography, sculpture, sketches, ramblings.) Enjoy!
And as it has transitioned lately, this is where I'm continuing communication to others about the ErosPulse exhibit(s).
Hot off the press... the ErosPulse book is now a publisher best seller!!!

More press coverage added daily.
ErosPulse is not necessarily a show about my work, oh no, it's about those who have exhibited an edge, those who want to exhibit an edge, and for those who allow the pulse of the edge to be shown. It's not me. It's an exhibit. Sort of. In Pulp Fiction, John Travolta remarked that the Jack Rabbit Slim restraurant was like a wax museum with a pulse. I think I can relate.
ErosPulse is not easy to define. It's an exhibit, but with collaborative depth and momentary long-lasting soul. Not a one time event, but ongoing, across the country, revolving through many cities, evolving over time. Dynamic. Multiple-artists, submission judged, an important art gallery exhibit displaying figurative arts, without boundaries.
The upcoming ErosPulse is scheduled to happen in Denver, Colorado in the Winter of 2009 (March 6-7, 2009). The exhibit is being held at the "Denver Creative Cooperative" near Denver's famed Sante Fe Arts District, and is currently scheduled to display more than 50 recent works from around the Globe. The call for artists is below, and is currently open to all artists, all mediums.
ErosPulse. I'm always asked to define it. But I can't... is it: Topic â Genre â Forceâ¦
It could be called anything. ErosPulse...
But what is it? Perhaps itâs defined by what itâs not. Itâs not porn. But certainly some will see it as such. Itâs not religion, but others will see it as heavenly... even biblical. That whole ultimate creator thing will keep many wonderingâ¦ debating. Hence if the body is created by some god, it must be art.
Is it erotic? Erotica? Sorry, but that word conjures up visions of old porn crossing over into art soley because it's black and white, or even sepia, so as to avoid persecution back in the day. At least to some it does. We donât care to make this a âhistory of eroticaâ show. In fact, we donât want to call it erotica per se. Never one to pigeon hole art. We want pieces of work that artists felt compelled to submit, that in a cumulative manner, defines the current pulse of inhibitions inspired, right now... Sure, it will be a broad range. But it will be current... for a momentâ¦ donât blink. Not in the Winter of 2009.
For sure itâs sexy. Sensual. Provocative. Naughty. Edgy. Is it nasty? To some, and therefore thatâs the edge. A dichotomy of sorts between porn and the bible. Our goal here in producing this exhibit is not to define âitâ. But rather document "it". Exhibit "it".
We merely want to take the momentary pulse. ErosPulse.
What are artists âcontrivingâ in the Winter of 2009? Each piece will have a provocative artistâs statement. A voice in perhaps a very different language. The inspiration, the motivation, the thoughtsâ¦
ErosPulseâ¦ Itâs skin, it's satin, it's lace, it's leather, it's figurative, it's genitals, it's naive, i'ts blatant, itâs seductive, itâs raunchy, itâs classy, itâs rude, itâs prude, itâs blasphemy, itâs interesting, itâs intriguing, itâs inquisitive, itâs biblical, itâs porn, itâs tasteful, itâs disgusting, itâs many interpretations on oil, canvas, watercolors, photographs, wood, concrete, marble, clay, solids, liquids, gas â¦â¦ imagination.
ErosPulse. An exhibit as complicated and heated as sexuality itself.
