These are pictures by Al Wong of me “disappearing” into my artwork. The light reflective quality of the fabric combined with my own shadow give me the sensation of both being present and invisible. Much of my work explores this duality.

I am happy to share that two of my photographs will be included in the the exhibit “Art Speaks! Lend Your Voice” at the Arena 1 Gallery in Santa Monica, CA.

While working on my installation “Mind/Mountain,” my husband artist Al Wong really captured the energy of how I felt with his video camera. I especially enjoy the way he “burrowed” through the work to capture multiple angles and impressions. It is nearing completion and measures 13’W x 9’D x 6.5’H.
I find that early mornings are my best time to focus on my artwork. These are pictures of my work table with my many colored bobbins and spools of thread spread out. On my Singer 1968 model sewing machine, I am piecing together tulle segments for my next installation. The quiet of the early morning is a great time.
