I'm excited to announce: my first solo show at Wally Workman Gallery opens next month in Austin! I will be traveling to Austin to deliver the work and will be present for the preview party on Thursday, March 3 and the opening reception on Saturday, March 5. There is an artist talk on Thursday night, so please come to hear about this new body of work.
I have been in hibernation since September working through this new work, inspired by a wonderful two-week adventure in Iceland last year. I started by spending the month of October digging up ideas during an artist residency at the Millay Colony for the Arts in Austerlitz, NY (near the home of poet Edna St. Vincent Millay). With four walls of space and complete isolation, I delved into a magical land of icebergs, northern lights, and geothermal forces.
Inspirations for Hunting for Mysteries include cranes, sea vessels, turfhouses, and lighthouses with the addition of natural elements such as icebergs and rock formations. Iceland's strong natural forces of the earth and sea prompted me to go underneath the ground plane in my compositions, playing with underwater and sectioned landscapes.
Preview work from the show here.
