NEW WORK 2018



NEW WORK 2018

It was with much difficulty and sadness that I finally decided to leave my awesome studio and community at Studio Place Arts. And paradoxically it is with quiet and intense excitement that I am preparing a new studio at 83 Winter Street in Hardwick -- less than a mile from where I live!

Here is a sampling of the work that has been created amidst the transition.

SHADOW BOXES


shadow boxes

Of his own work, Joseph Cornell once said, "Shadow boxes become poetic theaters ...wherein are metamorphosed the elements of a childhood promise."....His work is my muse.....the container acts as a metaphor for the whole world....a treasury of curiosities that is compelling to explore ... the fragments of once beautiful objects that come together in a magical way -- that is my goal......"the elements of a childhood promise."

Every summer on the coast of Maine, for 2 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 draw the tracks that I would find at every low tide, tracks made by small snails, each one striking in its originality, and startling in the abundance.
