Things are always evolving, right?
I’m going to stop hosting 1st Fridays (after July 5) while I develop a new body of work. This is a fitting turn of events since the last two 1st Fridays focussed on work I made 6-15 years ago.
Making sculpture is time consuming, and back breaking (!), and slow, so it deserves a non-hurried approach. After all, that’s the point of it. To meditate on the stone, and to watch how it makes itself into its own surprise.
My paintings are more deliberate as I focus on subtle work that allow the viewer a glimpse into a quiet world. The goal is create something with enough depth to causes you to look again and again.
As the work gets bigger and bigger, I’ll be looking for other places to show the work. As lovely and big as my studio is, it’s not the best place to see the larger work in one place.
So, I’d love to show you any of this work, both big and small, when it’s convenient to you. Contact me using the link above to let me know your druthers. And, to answer your next question, there’s no need to feel pressure to buy just because you make an appointment. It’s fun for me to hear your thoughts and get feedback.
