New Work Premier

Showing in May at 555 Gallery

I’m thrilled to announce that photographs from my new series Event Horizons will be on display at 555 Gallery in South Boston (555gallery.com) throughout the month of May.   The curator of 555 Susan Nalband is taking a unique approach to this group show.  Each of the artists will be available for “Portfolio Talks” discussing the work on display as well as other work they may be producing.  This is a chance to get to know both an artist and their work in a one to one setting.

I’m scheduled to be at the gallery on three Saturdays (May 16th and 30th and June 6th) from 2- 5 pm, as well as on Thursday May 21st from 6-8 pm.  These are informal sessions where I’ll be talking about the development of my new series titled Event Horizons, some of which are featured above.  In addition to the work on display, I would be happy to show you the extended series which will be available in the gallery’s flat files.   I look forward to seeing you there!

New Work-Chiaroscuro and Texture

It’s been too long since I’ve posted last, but I have new work to show for it!  My photographs have recent taken an interesting turn toward a darker pallet, along with an intensification of the surface textures. Continue reading »

Existence Behind a Mask

I love how the metal distortion, the light and shadows combine to create this image.  It looks as if Z has removed her mask only to reveal, nothing?  That’s the danger of masks.  They hide and protect us.  They feel like armor.  But worn too long and the self atrophies, like a limb held in a cast.  The thing that was supposed to support becomes a tool of waste.  Sometimes it’s good to pull the mask off, to let in light and fresh air.  Even if it risks being exposed.

I’ve been remiss

Apologies for the long pause in posting.  I’ve been working through some ideas artistically.  Some of the experiments have been successful.  Others well, not so much.  But I learn as much from the gems as from the kerblewys! Continue reading »
