February 2011

it’s been a busy year, so here’s a recap.

for those of you who are following me on facebook – thank you! i find it much easier to maintain on a regular basis than this webpage, so you will probably be the people who see the new work first. i have updated thios page though, so all my new works are here now.

the first new piece was one called ‘laundry’, made from a child’s bed headboard, veneer, and oils. thank you to my lovely model from next door who hung sheets for me in her rubber boots in january to get the lighting right.

i also started a new series last year called ‘the studio series‘, and it’s a group of sculptural box works, like a doll-house version of the studio, inspired by another neighbour who moved away last summer. there will be 7 in the series, and also another work called ‘portrait of the artist as a concept’, which was created for the ‘portrait of the artist’ online exhibition based in Taranaki, NZ. this work was one of the 25 chosen for the permanent online exhibition, and is also in the catalogue. links to the permanent exhibiton and catalogue are here.

i also finished another series to go to the 13th annual collage exhibition and exchange in taranaki again this year, and this time, it’s personal. the series, that is. i’m hoping the people who get them in the exchange will like them, as i haven’t worked in images like this since college, when i made a conscious decision to stop making work that was graphically disturbing. however, this particular series felt ‘necessary’ for me, so it now exists. you can find out more about the collage exchange here, and images of the series are here.

so at this point, i am working on more pieces for the studio series, and also hope to start the real work on the large sculptural painting ‘walking out of fairyland’, which i spent last year stripping down 2 large wooden doors for. and i want to start doing some small watercolour scultpures as well. and if all goes well, i won’t lose my outdoor studio this summer (the landlord wants to build an addition there).

wow…i have been lax in updating this. in case you’ve been wondering about the facebook link box to your right, you do NOT have to have a facebook account to view my page or the images on it. all you have to do is click on my name in the top part of the box, and it will take you to my facebook page, which is public. then you can keep up with all the new stuff.

currently, i’m playing around with artist trading cards. these are turning out to be a whole lot of fun, and i’ve traded almost all the ones i’ve made so far through facebook, and an ATC trading site called www.atcsforall.com. there is some great work there, by all levels of artists, and i have rediscovered my love for watercolour through these little cards. you can see the ATCs that i’ve done and traded on my facebook page.

as far as shows are concerned, i took part in a show in Long Island City, NY in February, called Putting-It-All-Together: Collage, Montage, Assemblage. the 3 pieces i submitted for the show are here, and it’s a tryptych.

and once again, i’m in the 12th Annual Collage Exchange & Exhibit in New Zealand. this time, the works sill be showing at the Puke Ariki Museum in New Plymouth, NZ, as well as in the Month long exhibition onsite at http://virtual.tart.co.nz, Silent Auction on the site.

please go check out the show on the link…and support the many many talented artists in the exhibition. you don’t have to go to NZ to support us!

i’ve just completed something radically different for my work – a wooden and glass screen piece, done in ink and acrylic. images are here.

also, i’ve discovered a way to keep people up-to-date on what i’m doing these days in a much easier fashion – i have a FaceBook page, and i can stream it to here. so, up in a little box at the top, i will be streaming my FaceBook page, which i update far more often. become a fan if you like! it’s always nice to have more fans.
