INSTALLATIONS

I love the idea of an installation, yet it is a better artist than I that manages the time commitment along with the collaboration that may be part of it. To date I have only accomplished a few over the 30 years as an artist.

The Pulse 2016 work evolved slowly and then became a collaboration when friend and poet Victor Densmore looked at it, and, on the spot, composed the poem that completed the piece.

The large green branches work became an installation when I realized it belonged on the wall as a very gentle yet strong statement -- almost as if someone was carrying dead bodies from rubble.

And my last installation work to date, the Wyeth pieces, became installations in light of the mini easels of actual Wyeth reproductions --- together with my sculptures...in other words, the work came out of me "installing" myself in the Wyeth's Maine world of Christina and Alvaro Olsen.
