Sat down over the weekend and mapped out plans and goals for 2010. Definitely want to go for more art residencies and shows, especially those in New York and other countries. I started working tonite on two of the 13 collages I need for this New Zealand art exchange and exhibit due in March. I'm jazzed!
This design was created digitally from photos of trees I took outside my window on the bay, after an earlier snow in December. The trees were cropped and reflected in Photoshop over a horizontal and vertical axis to make this geometric pattern forming a lacy intricate web of snow and branch.
I susbmitted this mixed media collage peice for the Black Exhibit which closes with a reception Sunday, January 10 at the DC Arts Center in the Adams Morgan neighborhood from 5 - 7:00 p.m. This group exhibit features art by BADC (Black Artists of DC). Come and meet the artists.
I can't wait to get back into my studio in 2010 to continue work on my Bye-Ku series that I started last winter while Keyholder Resident at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center in Silver Spring. My Bye-Ku series addresses issues of loss in personal relationships. These narrative artworks include both traditional methods of printmaking (like monoprints) in addition to more experimental prints done digitally on the Epson 9800. I'm jazzed.
I see myself as a visual storyteller. My narrative mixed media art explores the interaction of words, symbols, and imagery in my art making. My craving for the tactile keeps me bound in traditional printmaking and painting— however, my interest in new technologies has pushed me to explore digital processes and the marriage of the two.
