I was really happy I got to work on a collaboration with my good friend Peter Pracilio for Friends With Benefits at the Distillery Gallery in South Boston.
Our piece, Nature Was Here, incorporates Peter's sculpture and my drawings to create a narrative wildlife habitat populated by the vandalous visages of animals long gone from the now industrial are. We has been talking for years about doing a project together and it was cool to see something finally take shape. I think the challenges of painting this particular spot in the gallery really added to the concept of these animals being the artists in question.
Thanks to Scott Chasse and Pat Falco for all their work getting this show together.
