summer remains...



Pressed leaves, folded paper, reminders of the just ended summer...

mounts and valleys...

...valleys and mounts of the paper kind!

Once again I am showing a "structure" I am proud of, especially because it happened on a lazy kind of afternoon, made/composed/executed with papers I had treated, stained, painted, prepared and then totally forgotten!

With those papers discovered again and pulled from "the pile", I formed what I ended up calling: "secrets told in code"; and here they are shaped  in their new form, their brand new existence!

art in Philadelphia!

More than a year ago one of my works was selected for Philadelphia Center for the Book's Bodies of Text performance series*. Last weekend in the final installment, the performance of "in the wings, a study" based on my work was presented and I was there! 
In the University area of West Philadelphia, in a park with no stage, Eleanor Goudie-Averill and Beau Hancock carried their dance dialogue on both sides of four transparent panels by Nicole Donnely, in the mesmerizing music played by Chris Farrell.  Surrounded by the sounds and vibes of the neighborhood, they performed their sensitive interpretation of what they saw in my work; at the edge of the Park, in front of an audience that kept growing and growing, they delivered their sensitive and lyrical interpretation -a most precious gift of art to everyone fortunate enough to be there...
Following the performance the choreographer and I discussed our views on the work, the dance, the meaning of this collaboration and members of the audience had the opportunity to see my work, to hold it and find out more on the magic of creating with paper, with colors, with music and movement, the multitude of ways artists interpret and narrate stories from the heart...
*site specific collaborative dance performances tied to the book and its interdisciplinary interpretations.
