exhibition: 10x10

For the past few weeks I've been organising the 10x10 Invitational exhibition at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center along with Artistic Director Gretchen Schermerhorn. In its third edition, this exhibit will include more than 85 regional and national artists displaying prints, sculpture, paintings, drawings and a variety of other media. All work has been donated by artists, the sale of which will go towards funding programs at Pyramid Atlantic. The exhibition opens this Friday, November 3 at 6pm and continues until December 17. I am participating in the exhibition too. Below are the three mixed media artworks I am showing.

cézanne's mountain

Cézanne's mountain
in the evening light
My feet no longer 
on the ground.

There is the singular, and then there is everything else. Looking out into the world, you are in a twilight state (half daydreaming, half aware); that in-between of states that brings out the hidden magic that is everywhere. Lights twinkle and things rush past you. Your eyes, unfocused, take in shapes and color, and create new relationships, new realities. The body (hair flying) laps up the wind, thirsty. There is music, every high and low note unveils layers of meaning and connections. The singular isn't only in the midst of all, it is all.

updates in and out of the studio

Things have been quiet on the blog. In my last post, I was on my way to India for a holiday. I returned to the US around mid-June and have since retreated somewhat. Since my show ((Mountain x Crow x Echo)) at The Drawing Studio in Tucson my focus has turned to creating a new body of work. Beginning new work is of course a time for some wool gathering. A time to let the mind wander and look at things in a new light. I have also been busy the past couple of months preparing to move to a new place. We finally moved last week. On moving day I said goodbye to my studio of three years, happy to have had the chance to work in such a wonderful space. My new studio is a bit larger with lots of light. I'm in the process of setting up the space, dealing with boxes and drop cloth, thoughts and second thoughts about how to arrange things. Then there is life in general, which brings its own share of changes. I will talk about this when the time is right. Suffice to say that life has a way of making you pause and look both inside and outside yourself. And so it's a been a busy last few months with a number of changes. I have been taking this time to "wander at ease," as my teacher and mentor Josh Goldberg says with regard to painting (and life too).
