Wabi-Sabi art show at Sync Gallery

I'm happy to have one of my collages juried into the show, Wabi-Sabi: art of imperfection, at Sync Gallery. Juror was Michael Gadlin. I was out of town when the show opened last Friday and can't wait to go visit. The exhibition is on view through July 10th. Sync Gallery is at 878-1 Santa Fe Drive in Denver.

My piece (above) is "Formations," a collage composed of contemporary papers on wood panel, measuring 12 x 12 x 1" (with frame, not shown, it's approximately 14 x 14 x 1"). This collage was definitely influenced by my hiking in Colorado and Utah. 

Posted below is an image taken earlier this month while hiking at Roxborough State Park. I love the monumental qualities of huge rock formations and the way they change as the light moves across them over the course of the day. (To get a sense of scale in this photo, the straight line at bottom is a trail about 9 feet wide.)
