I am in a show at the Arlington Center for the Arts until Jan. 25th. It is called Marvelous Journeys and Unexpected Adventures. And what was really unexpected is that my piece called Little Beast won a Juror's Award for excellence! I am pictured here receiving the award with the other winners and photo of myself and Juror Lauren O'Neal in front of the winning piece.
Arlington Center for the Arts is at 41 Forster Street, Arlington MA tel: 781-648-6220. Visiting hours are from 9am - 5pm, Mon. through Fri.
I wanted to share some feed back I received from a person who bought my piece called, "Places I Have Lived."
"I thought I wold share a story about your work.
I went to the frame shop last night to work out some details and
the person who has done a lot of framing for Rachael and I said,
'What are these?!'
'I mean I know what they are.'
'But what are they?' He was really excited.
"I explained to him about the houses and the order and he was just thrilled with
the work and the story. In fact, he insisted that he do the framing himself (as
opposed to one of his associates) and that we wait a little longer to get the
"It thrilled me that someone else was just as excited a me about the work. I
hope it brings a smile to your face as well."
And it did.
My art comes from a place of deep intuition. To create a piece, I search for images and found objects that represent a mythological understanding of the human condition. The inspiration can come from classic myths, indigenous art or even pop culture. My work juxtaposes the common place with the impossible, creating an active and theatrical production of ideas. They are the poems, daydreams and memories that run through all our lives.
