This Blog Is Moving!

A collection of objects hanging on my studio wall.

With the launch of my new website I've decided to move this blog as well. It only makes sense to have things gathered into one place. The archives of this blog, 2009-2015, will be left intact for you to peruse if you'd like. If you have not done so I'd love for you to join my mailing list and subscribe to the RSS feed on my new blog. A big thank you to all my faithful followers--I do hope you'll join me in my new space!

Instincts, aluminum, plaster, resin, metal coating, patina, wax

This grouping of draped, nipple pieces are an extension of my fascination with the drop form. The bell-like breasts are more mammalian than human and more fetish than flesh--like an ancient rattle or tool of sorts. I try not to think of these associations when working. The forms began intuitively by twisting aluminum foil into a rough armature. After a layer of plaster they kinda looked like bent q-tips. Haha. I have more of these forms waiting but finished up this first group of four so I could see where they were going. Not sure how I would exhibit them, hanging individually or tied together as a bundle? There are many possibilities here.

Last weekend we were in Indianapolis and my parents took us paddle-boating on the canal downtown. The thing that struck me unexpectedly was the otherworldly view through the crystal clear water. It was mesmerizing to watch the koi fish swimming among the plant life through the mirrored reflection of the sky, trees and passing buildings. I took this short video to capture a bit of this layered landscape with a drifting leaf or two on the waters surface--a small reminder that the autumnal equinox is just around the corner.

While collecting snapshots of various textures I sometimes discover what I like to call 'found-scapes'. This is a loose term to include any image that reveals the abstraction of a landscape. Layers of strata, variegated striations or the hint of a distant horizon. Some are discovered on the side of a dirty dumpster or realized by my own manipulation of objects in the studio.

This & That

For the last few weeks I've been chipping away at a big project that I've put off for months years. I'm building myself a website! Many hours have been spent toiling in the vortex of Photoshop. The tedium of converting old-school 35mm slides (from those pre digital camera days) into legible imagery has almost gotten the best of me. I still have a ways to go but want you to know I've been up to something. can always find me here.

A few things of recent interest to me from the interwebs and beyond (ie, I read this & looked at that): 

An epic drawing project. More on Instagram.

Need to read Headscarves & Hymens after listening to this.

A massive collection of imagery from The British Library. Via.

Two women who want to change the way we die.

Loving this comic book scrapbook.
