Breaking from the restraints of the square or rectangle, my work is constructed of parts taken from specific times and places, moments and histories. The parts that I assemble are considered for both their narrative as well as their formal qualities. These artifacts are personally found and collected as well as gifted and inherited, serving as conduits for memories and metaphors. When arranged together as a collective set or composition of color, shape, texture and form, they rouse the senses of unspoken and interpretive reminders and possibilities. The words of Rebecca Solnit materialized as I sifted and contemplated my collection of objects in an attempt to follow the objects back in time and decode the secret constellations of the past.
This Thursday, December 3rd from 6-10 pm you can view the full installation of Object Wall (137 Parts). It is currently on display in Suite 213 of 57' Biscayne Artist Studios located on the corner of First and Cherry St in Seattle, WA as part of the December Open House.
The animation above playfully demonstrates my creative, experimental and collaborative process of working alongside Krisna Schumann. Together we have worked diligently as 'painters who don't always need to use paint' to create the installation, Spaces Between Places, currently on view in the storefront at Amazon on the corner of Boren and Harrison St. in the South Lake Union Area of Seattle, WA.
Listening to Still Keys Play their Silent Prose is a recent assemblage that I have constructed with tin, found objects, collage and wax.The work is currently on exhibit as part of the "Three-Fold" female group show on display at Ghost Gallery through July 5th. It is currently paired with Krisna Schumann's oil painting, In the First Place. It has also been recently featured on SFMOMA's On The Go Blog.
In an effort to make positive interactions and possibilities arise from the doomed fate of a multifaceted home that housed and supported artists in the Capitol Hill community, a pop up gallery of twenty local artists will be exhibited. On the corner of John and 12th St, hidden behind the shrubbery, sits 1123 Studios - a place that we intend to celebrate one more time in honor of its many years of provided service with affordable studios and office space. I am excited to announce that I will be to be exhibiting in Art Invasion: Round II. The pop up gallery will be open Thursday June 11th from 5-10 pm and then again on Sunday June 14th from 12-5 pm.
This June I am exhibiting at my old stomping ground.
