Get Busy

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!

Under Concrete

In the studio tonite making small collages about Haiti and the awful devastation. Using paste papers painted with gray. Imagining what it must feel like buried beneath mounds of concrete and steel.

Lacy Veil of Snow

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.

Back to the Studio in 2010

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.
