I like to make pictures, creating worlds that don’t exist but could. A few years ago, in an effort to ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’, I decided I was no longer going to buy new materials to make art. Instead, I began ‘cannibalizing’ the material in my studio: old sketchbooks, old exhibition invitations, brochures and other material that I had somehow failed to throw away for one reason or another. You can view some of the resulting collages as well as my other drawings and paintings here:
In addition to “pictures”, I also make “installations” – loosely focusing on ideas about our relationships to the land, our relationships to each other, and the role of art in mediating these relationships – i.e., how images affect what we think and how we behave. You can view some of these under the tab “installations“.
under the tab “2-D work“.
Recently, I’ve also gone back to making “applied art” – specifically, painted furniture because I enjoy making things that are unquestionably “useful” and have a function (other than/in addition to contemplation). In line with my ecological concerns, I try to “re-use and recycle” as much as possible
As you can probably tell from my blog (Process/Progress), I’m interested in sharing what I do – and how I think about what I do – and I’m also interested in what you think. So, enjoy browsing through the site, “follow me” to keep up with the blog, and if you’re inspired or energized by or have questions about the work, I’d love to hear from you.
