Good Times was my second solo exhibition at Interface Gallery. The show included both abstract and figurative watercolor works on paper which explored the construction of painting and narrative through the lens of syndicated network television from the 1970's and 80's.

The figurative work, rendered loosely in the style of my Sitcom Series, referenced selected images from the television shows Dynasty, Good Times, Fantasy Island, Flipper, Gentle Ben, and Lassie. The images in the show reflect memories of programs I watched as a kid, highlighting certain aspects of those stories that resonate today.

From the press release: "Dissolving into negative space, these manufactured scenes of everyday life hint at a larger narrative context and amplify the sense of odd sentimentality associated with pop culture of a bygone era that was not so long ago.
