Joel Anderson, Tri-Hexa Oak

My ‘Tri-Hexa Oak’ was selected to be in the Houston Visual Arts Alliance 34th Juried Membership Exhibition by juror Zoya Tommy, owner of Zoya Tommy Gallery. The exhibition was at Spring Street Studios Oct 24 through Dec 3, 2016.

This piece was my first full scale use of 3D-printed multi-color hexagons. It was a part of my #Heatstroke3D show at Archway Gallery this past February. The dimensions are 25″ x 19″ including the frame.

It is available for $750 plus tax and shipping if applicable. See my Contact page if interested.

A Summer’s Solstice in 3D

Dates for the showing:  5/24-7/12
Opening / reception:   Saturday, 6/11 4-6 PM
Location: Kam’s Wok / Wine / Dine
4500 Montrose Blvd, Houston, TX 77006

A Summer’s Solstice in 3D is a celebration of earth’s natural rhythms amidst the randomness. 3D-printed elements are incorporated into encaustic paintings in much of the exhibition, characterizing the strict precision of some of earth’s elements (sunrise, sunset, and the timings of the solstices). Encaustic – beeswax mixed with resin – which is applied in a molten state, characterizes the randomness juxtaposed against the precision.

Best in Show at Frisco Arts in the Square

IMG_20160402_132935383I was thrilled to receive the “Best in Show” award at Arts in the Square in Frisco, Texas during my Spring 2016 North American Tour. What a wonderful surprise! This was a really well run art fair – the organizers did a stupendous job, the artists’ hospitality was exceptional, the weather was great, and the crowds were amazing.

#Heatstroke3D

BannerShotMy debut solo exhibition runs February 6 through March 3 at Archway Gallery. The show includes over 50 new works, most including 3D printed objects to fully exemplify my tagline of combining modern digital elements into the ancient encaustic medium.

I am fortunate to have benefit of the PR team at Archway. Below are some of the media publications:

Houston Press

And if you weren’t able to attend the exhibition opening, below is my Artist’s Talk, explaining my inspiration and struggles with integrating 3D printed objects into encaustics:

“Harnificent” at The Art Car Museum’s “Reincarnation” open exhibition

Harnificent

I regularly distribute Visual Arts Alliance material to Houston’s Art Car Museum, so when their annual open exhibition approached I jumped at the chance to have one of my pieces included. Their exhibition REINCARNATION runs September 19 through December 19, 2015.

“Harnificent” is from my Mannequins at the leatherbar series, and of all of my pieces is the most fitting for a ‘Reincarnation’ theme. It was inspired by the movie Maleficent with a mixture of hell fire below and the heavens above — a sort of phoenix rising.
