Green Exhibition November 17th Robert Berman Gallery

I made a bold move into color with the clay pigments on this piece called "Flower of the Root". You can't see much detail here but the piece attempts to approach being at the center of life and finding renewal that inspires discovery as a result of the rough root of experience. The bird draws nourishment hovering just above the future and for one moment, harmony. On the left is the past, caverns that hold personal solitude, while entangling with personal history. On the right hangs the enduring leaf of individual spirit, defining moments that require imagination, reverence and beauty.

East Coast diaries 7/28-8/9, 2007

This summer I ventured around the east coast with my youngest daughter Ana after spending a week at a family reunion near Bath, Maine. My whole family are talented artists so we had a gallery show of all our works from the vacation. My parents and six of my siblings made it to the reunion. My daughter Ana and I continued our travels afterwards traveling across Mass. to N. Adams where our first stop was Mass MOCA. If you have not been there yet, put it on your list of art museums to visit. All of the exhibits are curated and contemporary...13 acres of museum. We ventured down to Stockbridge, caught a Shakespere Play in the Berkshires, Norman Rockwell Museum and then made our way to the Catskills to visit friend and incredible artist, Laura Levine, where she can be found at The Mystery Spot most weekends. We stayed at Kate's Lazy Meadows, owned and operated by Kate Pierson from the B-52's, slept in an airstream trailor down by the river. The trailer was a bit cramped, but really appreciated the beautiful design of an Airstream, which is a bit like imagining what it would be like to live in a doll house or doll trailer.
