This mini-series is about the process of letting go of perceptions of the world that inhibit us. Perception is so subjective as is our experience of reality.
These five soon-to-be paintings will be part of my April 2013 solo show “Laid Bare” at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. For more info, to be added to the preview list, or to reserve a piece early, email Matt Kennedy at email@example.com.

“Shapeshifter” Sketch. (jawcooper.blogspot.com)
Sketch for a painting that will be titled “Rattle.” She is a crumbling geode- possibly malachite and azurite or maybe pyrite…. or maybe just boring ol’ amethyst. I am fascinated by gems and minerals and have a pretty sizable collection.
These teaser shots are of a newly completed ink and gouache painting, “Flinch,” is about the practice of trepanning where holes are drilled into a living person’s skull to relieve pressure beneath the surface. Some people report a feeling of euphoria and it has even been used as a way to get high. This painting is part of a series called “Laid Bare” which explores vulnerability as a source of strength and empowerment.
