108º delirium

My new solo show, 180º Delirium, opened Thursday, October 6th at Benjamin & Benjamin Gallery in Portland. Thank you to  everyone who attended the opening reception, making for a great evening.

The art is now online at The Jimmy Pickering Store to view and purchase, click HERE to view the show.

One unfortunate reality of viewing the art online is the translation of some new mediums I used in these pieces which do not show due to their metallic nature.  Every painting has a silver leafed background, glazed with layers of oil paint to create rich and vibrant metallic surface.  Another first, all paintings have custom made frames, approximately 4.5" in width, coated with five layers of opaque shiny black laquer, a remarkable pairing with the art, as if they were just taken from the Addams Family mansion.  Other smaller pieces are in frames I sculpted and custom finished.

Below are just a few of the 101 pieces that comprise 180º Delirium.

Everything is freaking amazing! Love the new round grommets, the cross boned on the maple, and all those bad ass frames. Well done on everything!
