Lost and Found
I recently received a shipment of my work that had been away for at least 20 years. Some of the work dates back to 1977. It is quite a varied group. There are large scale photographic stained glass pieces, blue prints, textile pieces, Van Dyke Browns on Rives BFK, dye transfers and some sublistatic dye pieces (a process now defunct). Coming home, they brought with them the idea that you can be ecumenical in media. If you have 30 seconds, find a photograph, three minutes, do a pencil sketch. If you have a summer, work in stone, paint in oil and so on. Just commit to the making, the rest will take care of itself.
