Hyping other people's stuff, plus a little of mine.

Henry Samelson
Super, 2012

When I discovered Henry Samelson's work, I had an immediate response that went beyond liking the work visually. I felt we might share similarities beyond the surface. The "S" painting is what nailed it though.

Henry has a blog called Buddy of Work where he invites artists to show a secondary or alternative body of work along side their main body of work. He recently invited me to contribute to Buddy of Work. I could have hijacked the entire blog to devote to my offshoots, but the watercolors are always the ones I think of as my other work. You can read the blog post here.

I really like his work. From his resume it looks like maybe he didn't start painting til late?
