GROEP VAN ROEY, one of the biggest building companies in Belgium participates in the International Graphic Project. Every year 7 artists get invited to produce two etchings for the collection. I was honored to be one of this distinguished group in 2020. The project became truly international because it was initiated in Belgium, I have produced the plates during my residency at Il Besonte in Florence, the addition was printed in Portugal, and I signed the prints while back in Chicago.

Face to Face, an invitational exhibition of self-portraits.

I was honored and humbled to see my etchings exhibited alongside the works by Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso (In 1960 Picasso printed on the premises of Il Bisonte the only lithography that he ever made in Italy). The foundation has acquired one of my etchings for its permanent collection.
Dedee Shattuck Gallery, Westport, Massachusetts, USA
July 31 – September 1, 2019
The show is curated by Ben Shattuck, the gallery’s lead curator.
I was invited to take part in the exhibition of Eastern European artists, to which I contributed three urban paintings of St. Petersburg, the city of my birth. I found it particularly meaningful to create this body of work because it set my mind down memory lane. I welcomed the chance to re-experience my childhood memories and relate to them as an adult.
An etching “A Fish Rots From The Head Down” was recently acquired by LUMA (Loyola University Museum of Art) for its permanent collection.
