Two shows from 2018

Hello and Welcome Back! I thought this week I would share two really exciting shows I was in last year:

The Florida Biennial, The Art and Culture Center, Hollywood, FL (forthcoming)  •  Juror: Artspace Curator and Gallery Director Sarah Fritchey:

The Gallery, The Armory Show at Pier 92/94, New York, NY


Genius Loci

Hello and Welcome Back! While studying architecture at Virginia Tech I was introduced to the idea of Genius Loci or the spirit of place, a space where meaning is composed of ordered time, a layered space of substances, texture, color and man’s psychic framework.

Plein Air painting has always been a huge part of my studio practice. Below is a plein air painting created at the Oregon Trail Ruts in South East Wyoming while at the Jentel Artists Residency in 2008. It is a place carved out of time. Wagon wheels, animals and people wore down the trail about two to six feet into a sandstone ridge during its heaviest usage by American Pioneers.


Draped Structure XI

Hello and Welcome Back! I finished this piece about a month ago, it is part of my low relief sculptural painting series. Love how this piece captures a character or personality. ‘Draped Structure XI’, 2019, linen, thread, paper clay, ink, velvet, porcelain, sterling silver chain, 14x12x6


Questions of Space by Bernard Tschumi

Hello and Welcome Back! Architecture has a huge role in my work. Bernard Tschumi’s book Questions of Space has influenced me since the late 90’s when I studied architecture. Tschumi interprets architecture as a reality in terms of not simply being about space and form, but also about event, action and what happens in space. He proposes that architecture is composed of difference and opposition rather than synthesis and totality, meaning reality can never be fixed, but is produced from isolated frames, disjunction and abounding events.
