Curtain Photographs (self portrait)

These still images originate from a video performed in 2006 during graduate school.  Slow motion clips of curtains gently dancing when the figure behind motions to peek out ever so slightly.

Renderings and Tokens

I've started to create some commissioned drawings. Here are the first three.

Take Flight

I am alone for a while. Brant left tonight to help his mom and dad in Arizona during her illness. This is a tense and sad time for our family and I find myself compelled to make work in Brant's absence.

Being alone always reminds me of the amazing man I am married to and how incredibly funny he is. The immediate lack of laughter in our little apartment startles me but the silence gives me some space to think and work.

In a Creative Space

I've always respected artists that work in the studio daily, even if they produce very little. Many times I've heard these artists say that forcing themselves to just 'be in a creative space' created results they didn't expect and led to new work. I'd call these happy accidents.

My studio is my house, so my work challenge to myself is a drawing a day.

Here we go.
