Over the past two years I have created a large built-environment and ceramic bird installation for an exhibit at the Missoula Art Museum that was on display from August 23, 2018 Through Jan 12, 2019. Opening festivities took place on September 7, 2018. Here is a 2 minute video of the installation.
Another version of the exhibition is scheduled at the Holter Museum of Art from July 5, to December 31, 2019.
What has been coming out of my studio studio is a series of installations of my ceramic birds. I have placed them in a built environment (made of standing dead Quaking Aspen) along with flocks of wall mounted birds in flight. The birds are all cone six porcelain.
Since early 2003 I have been playing with the idea of making poems built of objects rather than words. Here are some of the results of that exploration. See more object poems or just paintings of objects.
I am playing around, mostly in 3 dimensions, with notions of a domestic narrative. The houses are showing up in paintings, on birds and in artist’s books. The newest houses are made of gessoed Baltic birch plywood painted with oil and set on a wooden stand.
