ThroughLines Exhibition Opening / Views

I'm loving having this series of collages on the walls at Spark Gallery... I always gain perspective on my work by standing back and studying it.

My artist statement for the ThroughLines collages:Recurring issues can confront and confound us, occupying our thoughts. Technology distracts us with incoming stimulation. Daydreams intrude...These collages are visual riffs on all that we carry within: explorations of the processes in our minds as we address issues of bandwidth, multitasking and overwhelm—alongside goals of simplicity, mindfulness and purpose.Each collage represents a moment in time, full of multi-layered and competing thoughts, hopes, fears, dreams, and memories—all moving forward and influencing each other—glimpses of the landscape of my mind.The collages are made from ripped strips of contemporary repurposed paper using a wet working technique.

For those who were unable to be at the opening of my show at Spark Gallery, click below for a quick tour of my show as installed.[embed]https://youtu.be/rcNdlxrYNq8[/embed]To see each collage in detail, view the ThroughLines: Virtual Exhibition on my website. Pour yourself a glass of wine (or beverage of choice) and see the whole show at your leisure!If you have questions or are interested in adding one of the collages to your collection, please get in touch. Cheers!

Collages at Robert Anderson Gallery + Daily Mail Catalog

One of the collages in the exhibition, 17 MAY 2013, collage on watercolor paper, framed 12 x 9." Some of the collages from my Daily Mail series are included in an exhibition of the Denver Collage Club at the Robert Anderson Gallery through May 30, 2015. The show features the work of more than 20 collagists and was recently written about in L'Oeil, an online photography journal, as well as Kolaj magazine. The gallery is located at 2426 East Third Avenue, Denver, Colorado. Hours are 11am-6pm Thursdays through Saturdays.I've recently (finally!) organized all 75 images from the original series into a catalog, now available for purchase online. Each collage is reproduced at almost full size... so for those of you who felt these pieces should never be separated from each other: an intact collection is now available!The Daily Mail catalog in its native habitat, amongst the wild paper debris!

Image & Word: Art and Poetry in Conversation

LeftoversThis summer I was invited to make an artwork based on a poem, then a poet used my collage as inspiration of a new poem, and so it went: eight artists, eight poets. Artists and poets worked in anonymity, so the unveiling will be a surprise for everyone involved, including: Chuck Ceraso, Susan Allspaw Pomeroy, Jimmy Sellars, Maria Melendez Kelson, Priscilla Fowler, Lisa Zimmerman, Jennifer Parisi, Bill Tremblay, Linda Armantrout, Aaron Anstett, Gayle Crites, Joseph Hutchison, Jared Smith, Monika Edgar, Kathleen Cain and myself.You're invited to attend the unveiling of the works at "Image and Word: Art and Poetry in Conversation" on August 16th at 7pm at the Louisville Center for the Arts in Louisville, Colorado. Tickets are $12 and seating is limited so reserve your seat in advance here.  I'd, of course, love to see you there!Since I'm not allowed to show my collage, I'm showing you the debris field of leftover papers behind and around my easel! Anything could've happened...
