    #VENICE(UN)ENTITLED is a piece from a collaborative multimedia gallery show.

    From two distinct neighborhood vantages, artists Glen Wilson and I have witnessed and documented the dramatic transformation of Venice Beach, where we have called home for 15 years. Our collaborative installation, #VENICE(UN)ENTITLED shares visual fragments of an ongoing conversation between artists. We explore the collisions, contradictions, and contrasts exposed by the process of gentrification in a neighborhood.

    Limited web edition of signed and numbered 50 16×20 fine art giclée print on archival paper.

    In honor of the annual celebration of Carnival in Brazil, and to accompany the launch of my personal film, Children of the Rainbow, I am releasing a limited web edition print. Being surrounded by music blasting, arms joyfully extended in the air, and love being expressed in every step, I was inspired to capture and share the extraordinary tradition of the beautiful Brazilian culture. This image was captured at the sambadrome which is where nearly 100 samba schools come to compete during the carnival parades. The queen of carnival represents and depicts the intense emotional and moving experience of Carnival. You can view Children of the Rainbow on Vimeo.

    The Volkslivin’ project began many years ago in Venice, California, when I became inspired by the prominent vans that appeared daily in my neighborhood. With these vans, it is so obvious that they are the canvas of each owner’s soul and spirit. Each one is cut from the same mold but ends up so different in character.

    I was intrigued by Hana, the most isolated community on the island. To reach this small village that has been virtually untouched by development, one must traverse the Hana Highway, a long winding road along Maui’s northern shore. And so began my Road to Hana, seeking Cheehoo Hān—a Bohemian Escape.
