SHADOW BOXES


The work of Joseph Cornell was so enthralling and out of reach for my abilities that I just did not care if I could not come close ....He inspires me — his work is magic rather than spiritual.

WINTER 2015-2016

The holiday show at Studio Place Arts (thru December) is a warm entry into the long winter — a time I find hopeful.
As the light diminishes it becomes quieter, then comes winter solstice— and with new light, hope and dreaming emerge.

The holiday show is filled with sparkling gems of art and craft!

Here is what I have in the show........

Every summer on the coast of Maine, for 2 or 3 weeks, I live with a group of artists and we all work. I wanted to do work that spoke to the sense of place, and since I have little talent to render the great beauty of sea and shore vistas, I chose to draw the tracks that I would find at every low tide, tracks made by small snails, each one  striking in its originality, and simply startling. 

sand tracks 11 // 2011 //17x14" twinrocker paper w/oil & oil stick // framed 30x24" // $400

Color field painting satisfies the search for physicality with atmosphere.
