For an artist every season seems to have its own character. Some of it is built on the backbeat of an ongoing piece or project, some may be on a regular teaching schedule, but there's always the melismatic ups and downs of recognitions and refusals, admissions and rejections. This Spring has turned celebratory for me and I am very excited to announce a move to a new gallery in the very hot SoWa district; I am now represented by Rafius-Fane Gallery at 460c Harrison Avenue in Boston www.rafiusfanegallery.com.
Also, two pieces in two museum shows: "Hair Pins", from an the ongoing personal project Iron Things at the Danforth Museum Art Annual, a project I discussed in my last post,
and "West Brighton, Staten Island, NY", at the Griffin Museum's 22nd Annual Peter Urban Legacy Exhibition.
Thank you Jessica Roscio, Curator at the Danforth for recognizing "Hair Pins" and its personal significance, and for juror Elizabeth Avedon and Paula Tognarelli at the Griffin Museum for admitting "West Brighton, Staten Island". There is hope I think for the observational process after all. I'm not sure what holds these two images together besides authorship and film based black and white. Call me Sybil if you will. I'll admit no identity disorder, but will confess a fascination, with life and the world, observed.
