“Demeter” collage series

I have just finished a series of 5 small works on paper this morning which I am calling “Demeter.” Each measures 6″ x 6″ and is a collage of gouache on paper, candle smoke and transparencies mounted on watercolor paper. For me, it is the physical and the spiritual that are starting to occupy the same space. So happy to share these with you!

“Passage” at La Bodega Gallery…

Passage

I am so excited that my collage “Passage” has been accepted into the group exhibit “RE: RE: RE: patterns” at @labodega_gallery in Brooklyn, New York. The show will be up from September 6 – September 29th.

This piece is 8″x10″ and is made of paper lace doilies and gouache on paper with clippings from @cutmeupmagazine (I love this publication which has inspired so many artists to experiment with collage! Check it out!)

New watercolor…

Calypso 3

This is #3 in my “Calypso” series. 19″ x 24″, watercolor and candle smoke on paper with sewn transparencies and iridescent thread on netting. I have been thinking of the Goddess and how beauty can be found when you look into the abyss and finally see yourself looking back.

Calypso..

This first painting in the series is finished! It is 19″ x 24″ and is made of watercolor, candle smoke and collaged and sewn transparencies as well as layered tulle. I have been integrating origami patterning with organic elements in my painting. Uncertain of this new work but feeling deeply like I need to follow it.

Artist talk at Evanston Art Center..

Here is a brief excerpt from my Artist Talk at Evanston Art Center this past Sunday in conjunction with my exhibit “Silent Music” up through August 11th. My comments were not scripted here so it was refreshing to hear myself speak candidly about what my work meant. There is what we believe consciously and then there are the inner workings. 😀

“Silent Music” is completed!

“Silent Music” is completed! So excited to share these pictures from my solo exhibit at Evanston Art Center on view through August 11th. This work measures 18’W x 8’H x 2’D and is constructed of dichroic film, vinyl table cloth, plastic bags, gold foil, hand-painted vellum, and thread. It is a site-specific work designed for the Art Center’s atrium window.
