art and life - both the cherries and the pits

Also at Art Week Miami and now at Fog Art & Design in SF, this gorgeous display of bamboo-related art is actually rather comfortable to sit in, although I know I look very serious here. A new blog post about these local art fairs is underway.

A SELECT SERIES OF PRINTS ON PAPER

These very limited editions of fine art prints are originally created on my iPad Pro. They are archival pigment prints. Each is signed and numbered, mounted and framed. Most are also available as unframed A/Ps.

Feeling the Heat is the newest print on paper in my Costa Brava Series of partially dressed models at the beach. Shown at SNAP! at Arc Gallery 1/19-20.  An off-the wall show and sale! ©2017 srkirshenbaum

NEW! ALUMINUM PRINTS

Here's some background on how this piece developed.

"By combining a photo of an ancient temple in Burma with a life drawing, I'm melding time, place, and media. With irony, I'm placing a nude female in a sacred Buddhist context. She is escaping, contorting, and climbing out - emerging from a traditional society and suggesting we consider the oppressive impact of religion on the Rohinga minority in Burma." 
Inside the Walls is the piece that was selected by the juror for Discover, the January 2018 theme at SFWA. This work is an 18 x 24 inch dye-sublimation print on aluminum produced by Scaleupart.com. Ed 1/1. ©2017srkirshenbaum
