Hyperballad at Spoke Art

PRISMA Collective's 3rd annual group show

Following our first two annual exhibitions in San Diego and Los Angeles, the PRISMA collective will embark on its 3rd year tour, moving up the West Coast to land at Spoke Art’s San Francisco gallery on February 7th. For those who are not familiar, PRISMA is an artist collective founded by Kaspian Shore in 2011 that brings together an eclectic group of renowned creatives from all around the globe — the United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Ukraine, and Taiwan. Please visit the official website at to view all of the seriously amazing artists that are a part of this group.

Those who are familiar with my work know that music is a big part of my soul but it’s been a while since I’ve actually named one of my pieces after a song I love (the last was for a painting in my 3 Circles Series called A Song to Keep Us Warm after Radiohead’s song of the same name). Wanting big, colorful and majestic mountains to play a major role in my newest piece, I couldn’t help but think of Björk’s song Hyperballad as I painted. Just check out the opening lyrics…

We live on a mountain,
right at the top.
There’s a beautiful view
from the top of the mountain.
Every morning I walk towards the edge
and throw little things off
like car-parts, bottles and cutlery
or whatever I find lying around.
It’s become a habit,
a way to start the day…

See what I mean?
So without further ado, here’s my newest piece, Hyperballad…
