Cylinder #5 , 2010, paper, 1.625x1.62x2.125, Cylinder #5 (detail), Sphere #2, 2010, paper, 2 inch diameter
I offer these objects as quiet, intimate moments with pattern. Individual rings of white, 24 pound acid free paper are woven together in planned sequences and affixed into stationary forms. These delicate sculptures are all of a scale that would fit in the palm of one’s hand and would blow away with a breath. Vulnerable and ephemeral, each piece stands still and generates a quiet rhythm created by the predictable order of its repeat pattern. Whispering about form and structure, they beckon one to slow down and pause.see more here.

there are a couple of spaces open in my explorations in markmaking workshop june 20-24 at the center for contemporary printmaking in lovely norwalk, ct.
those of you who attended the branding demo last weekend at the encaustic conference got a little taste of what this workshop has to offer-fun stuff! we'll also cover rust printing, composting, stitch as a mark, working with soy wax as a resist, transfer crayons, instant indigo and so much more!
as you know from reading this blog, there are endless applications for mark-making no matter what kind of art you make!!
to see the work made in the workshop when i taught it there last year go to here.
