This series of work was created during my recent month long residency at El Housh Gallery in Fuheis, Jordan where I had the opportunity to travel around the country and soak up a ton of reference, insight into the culture, traditions, and history before starting on the work.

The exhibition is made up of several paintings, ink studies, and mosaic multiples which are all available now on 1xRun.com here.

I named the residency exhibition “Ascalon” after the mythical spear used by St. George to slay the dragon, an ever-present visual icon in Fuheis.  This powerful symbol can be interpreted many ways however I figured that since I was the first artist in the residency, we could refer to the show as “the tip of the spear”, if you will.
