ARTIST STATEMENT

After many years my work has come full circle and I have returned to the theme of swimmers and water.

Mixed with these are images of home and structure or assemblages, made of found objects I have collected over time.

 

The swimmers allow me to represent the female figure with a certain androgyny. The water they are submerged in, swim through, emerge out of is like the constantly changing moments in any given day; the effort to swim up and out of and to breathe. The structures are about entropy and the history that they hold, worn and beaten but still standing. And the assemblages take this idea one step further, incorporating actually pieces of this history.

 

In creating my work, I am constantly reminded that I cannot successfully manifest until I fully let go, of ideas, of expectations, of judgments. At times I find it incredibly difficult to do this but in the moments when I do get there it impels me to push forward and make concrete, on board with paint, ink, paper, pen, color and objects, these cumulative moments. My pieces are about water and breath, structure and entropy, about home and transitions, about the moment just before and the one right after and the one in between.

 

BIO

I am a working Artist, making time between time and whenever possible, to create.  I have lived in the Bay area for over 20 years. Prior to that time I lived in Santa fe and before that various and sundry places east of the Rockies.

 

I hold a BA in Intellectual History/Feminist Studies from Kirkland College and a BFA in Printmaking and Painting from the Maine College of Art, Portland, Maine.  I have shown extensively in various venues including galleries, museums, group collaborations and solo exhibits and is part of several private collections in the US and abroad. I am currently represented by  SHOH Gallery, Berkeley, CA and Mary Praytor Gallery, Greenville, SC.
