Wednesday evening I made a presentation on my work at the Center for Book Arts in New York.
First of all I have to say how happy I am to have "altered neighborhood story II" juried into The [Un]framed Photograph show, how perfectly awesome to be in New York and participate in this wonderful event at the center, how terrific to be among amazing artists and seeing their work in real life...
Presently the Center is going through some serious renovation work and it's truly remarkable how they managed to have two shows going on at the same time and also to host an Artists' Talk that night. I am humbled by this experience and all elements associated with it. Many thanks to Alex Campos (Executive Director), Sarah Nicholls (Program Manager) for the superb communication, technical assistance and gracious hosting despite the construction work going on right there.

paper, inks, folds... thoughts!

Often my work seems to respond to what I need and want right at the spot! Or is it that I create my work, subconsiously responding to my thoughts at that time or  perhaps guided by the energy of my state of being, totally unaware at the time of what my palette, my applying gestures, my motives are all about...
Here is one of my newer structures appearing almost by magic; it was completed without realizing it; maybe that's what being in a state of trance really is...

urban stories...

opened and closed!

This group of structures is part of a body of work based on photographs I took of a certain Brooklyn neighborhood, and "colored" by the reflections and moods I experienced during the time I spent there last winter.
