Shows Opening Saturday, September 29th

Hello All, I have two show openings this Saturday night! Both are in Southern CA. One in San Diego at Left Hand Black in South Park, and the other in Costa Mesa at the lab. The "As Issued" Show at the Lab in Costa Mesa is curated by my friend Kevin Peterson and features the drawings of over 20 artists. There is some amazing talent in this show, and a lot of reasonably priced art, so grab it while it's still available! I'll be attending this opening, so come out and say Hi if you can. The show preview can be found here:

Next up is the "Horror Business" Show at Left Hand Black in San Diego. This is my first time showing with these guys, an I'm super excited to see a new gallery space open up in SD. All of the art for this show is painted on Meat Cleavers, I was able to get a sneak peak at some of the pieces when I dropped mine off, and they looked amazing! Some custom cleavers and amazing art!!

Macabre Show at La Luz de Jesus - Only 3 Pieces Left!

Hello Friends, I am so pleased to announce that my Dark Mother series for the La Luz de Jesus Gallery "Macabre" show is nearly sold out!! After just a few days online, there are only two paintings and one drawing left for purchase. If you are interested in owning a piece from this series, please contact the gallery director at La Luz De Jesus Gallery Macabre Show - "Dark Mother" Series October 5th, 2012 4633 Hollywood Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90027

"Dark Mother" October 5 - 28, 2012 Opening Reception: Friday, October 5th; 8-11 PM All New Works Jasmine Worth's latest collection is titled Dark Mother. In this series she's focused on the conflicted imagery of woman as both holy mother and originator of sin. Embracing the Pagan roots of the Goddess Mother image, as well as the iconography of other religions, she seeks to unify the diverse depictions of the divine mother into one entity. In these works she reunites the image of the divine mother into a whole, encompassing both aspects of the dichotomy that has torn her in to an object of both reverence and fear. Jasmine Worth crafts scenes from fairytales gone awry—swirling seamlessly between the sweet and surreal, inevitably dipping into the valley of the morbid. She studied formally at Watts Atelier as well as Studio 2nd Street in Encinitas, CA, and earned her BFA from the Laguna College of Art and Design. While she possesses the credentials, the product of her toils clearly pours from the cobwebbed corners of her mind, not the classroom. Her paintings—a cabaret of vibrant hues—are a blend of soft textures and colorful characters, juxtaposed against gloomy themes. Created in her home of San Diego, Jasmine combines dark influences and subtle-yet-serious undertones with raw artistic talent and a rarely seen creativity. Her work exudes a strong bearing of individuality, manifested through characters that speak almost vocally and give a new element of depth to an otherwise two dimensional medium. Each scene tells a story and every story is as diverse in emotion as it is in appearance. Contact the Gallery Director for availability and purchase info: (323) 666-7667

Sacred Machine Show Preview

The upcoming weeks of show madness are about to kick off. Everything I've been working towards for the last year is going to be taking place in the next 8 weeks. I'm excited, but also starting to feel the pre-show jitters a bit. Starting with the Live Free Podcast Show at Hellion Gallery in Portland, OR. I will be in attendance for this, so I hope to see some of you there. Portland has to be one of my favorite places in the world, and I'm really excited to be showing there for the first time.

Next up is the Santa Muerte show in Tucson, AZ at the wonderful Sacred Machine gallery of Daniel Martin Diaz. I'm really flattered to be part of such an amazing list of talent.

After that will be the first show of the Splendor Device female art collective "Hell Hath No Fury" at Rothick Haus in Anaheim, CA. I will also be there for that so I'm hoping to see some familiar southern California faces there. Splendor Device is the brain Child of Kelly Castillo, co-owner of the Anaheim gallery Rothick Haus. Kelly has amazing things planned for the group, mountains of creativity and thought have gone in to this project. It's been a truly inspiring experience to be a part of this creative process with a bunch of talented artists.
