All of this color is giving me a headache. Just kidding. The WhiteOnWhite series grew out of necessity. For years people have been intrigued by the stencils that are usually used to create most of my paintings. With that in mind and a personal need to showcase my Xacto skills, the WhiteOnWhite series was born. These are my first major experiments with cut paper as a finished product. I've been spending a lot more time recently concentrating on that skill set as a place to shine.
I am a New Orleans-based painter and musician originally from Fulton, IL. I earned my B.A. in printmaking from Western Illinois University and his MFA at the University of New Orleans in 2017. My art has graced the walls of galleries in Warsaw, Chicago, Kansas City, Washington D.C., Portland, Los Angeles, Austin, Miami, and New Orleans. My show "Fire Department" at the Dubuque Museum of Art in Dubuque, Iowa, was exhibited beside one of America’s most treasured artists, Grant Wood. In 2012 I was commissioned to paint a portrait for Matthew McConaughey's personal collection.
My work has been featured in publications such as Time Out Chicago, Art and Art Galleries of the South, Art+Design New Orleans, as well as the Rizzoli book Stickers: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art. I'm also the subject of the independent documentary film Brent Houzenga: Hybrid Pioneer.
