I feel like I've never worked so hard for an opportunity as I did for this one. I am very grateful to be back atfor a six-month role as community artist in resident (CAIR). This organization is run by the most supportive people, director Jason Ramos and director emeritus Michelle Carla Handel. I'm joining fellow CAIR Stacy Wendt who has been sailing the ship for the last few months.
During my residency, I will be helping with the organization's daily operations, getting back in touch with the LA arts community, and making new works. I'm ready...

After holing up in my studio over the summer, I'm bringing out the new work for a solo show at. Big thank you to gallery director Lauren Davies for her enormous support.
The title of the show, Flickering Sky, refers to that unease we feel as the storm approaches, a sense of not knowing, moments of becoming that sometimes never arrive.

I'm very happy to have been invited to be Visiting Professor of Art in Painting at Oberlin College this coming semester. I'm looking forward to mentoring students in painting and senior studio.
My time at Headlands was unforgettable and transformative for me and my practice. I met the most amazing people including the Headlands staff and resident artists, writers and musicians. The studio space was more than I ever could have dreamed of and the surrounding landscapes never ceased to leave me in awe.works in progress in the studioworkingthe coast
Here are a few snapshots from my road trip west to the artist residency at Headlands Center for the Arts. The long hours on the road and shifting landscapes never fail to bring me new ideas and inspiration.Iowa skysomewhere in KansasArizonaDeath ValleyDeath Valley Super BloomMarin Headlands

Kolodjiez writes, "The work in this exhibition explores both the visual and haptic senses. Painting today is in a dialogue with a digital future and an analog history. A sense of touch is central to the practice of these artists. Movement, color, texture, and absence are all ways that painting visually and tactilely engages the processing of information in time, material, and space. The sense of touch is integral to orienting oneself and directing action."
