Nice focused collection. Or do you have more artists???
Yes, I do but with no center of interest... more of a smorgasbord, if ya know what I mean.
Here are some of what I'm talking about.
I'll start off with an artist named Nathan Cordero who cuts on wood and tags with a simple image of a cigarette.

Thank you Jediak & Kim, Since money is a little tighter lately, I've been trying to be more selective on the art purchases. For example, the purchase that is most important to me these days is the Saber "Flag". Not only is it rendered beautifully, but his "Flag" series has taken his art career to another level, IMHO. I like the message behind the art, which is powerful (at least for the US population), and is drawing a lot of attention to some of the problems this country is facing right now. I hope to add more Saber art to my collection in the future.

Great pieces you have! Thanks for sharing. Love the McGrath piece and Chris Mars. I'm intrigued by the RK Sloane commission. I had a piece by him that was so SO CREEPY and disturbing that for many years I had to keep moving it around the house (out of view). It wound up behind a door in the guest room. I tried to resell it through a few galleries with no luck. After Rick passed away I was contacted by his son (i forget his name). He's a very nice guy and he was distraught that when his father died he left none of his art with the family and really wanted the piece. I miss the painting now but it's more appreciated with his son I'm sure.
Thanks OFAP, I think you did the honorable thing for Rick's son. I once sent a check to Rick for a pizza, and he appreciated it so much he said he'd do a drawing for me, thus the little drawing of the Rat Fink eating the pizza.
troom, I have been holding off on commenting on people's collections since I haven't posted my tiny collection here (I will post some of my originals as soon as I have them all at home--payments); I wanted to let you know your collection is impressive. That Viner is def. a highlight for me; very endearing your stories (OFAP and yours) about RK Sloane. thanks for sharing...
