Here’s the first batch of paper, made with my new Valley beater– flax fiber with recycled papers, turning out a beautiful pearl grey.

Can’t wait!

Four new paintings

February 17, 2013

After 5 intense weeks in the studio, I have 4 new paintings (mostly finished, I think) in a series titled “First Story of the Flood, I – IV”. Actually they’re titled First Telling, Second Telling, Third Telling and Fourth Telling.

There’s definitely a strong interest in the role of narrative, collective memory, and appropriation of narrative / memory in the building of self-identity.

Art in the Open, May 18-20th, 2012

May 21, 2012

I spent 3 gloriously sunny days outside along the banks of the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia for the Art in the Open festival. Here are photos of the progress of my piece, and I will add more photos as the “Sun Stone” begins its slow collapse back into the earth. The whole process will take about 6 weeks.

Documentation and excerpts of this piece will be on view at the Independence Seaport Museum June 14th – Sept. 9th, 2012.
