Songs of Disaster and Forgiveness

Songs of Disaster and Forgiveness is a series of black and white images encompassing still life, urban landscape, and found images.  Shot on monochrome film with an Instax mini camera, the images are scanned and then lightly edited.  Many images are double exposures embracing chance, walking the line of anticipation and intuition as well as failure.  The images inhabit a realm of suspended time - dream time - not unlike the experience of grief.  Fragments of found words, drawn from poetry, letters, song lyrics, and art books, are also included as separate images.  The words and images whisper to each other, telling a story that presses near even as it can’t quite be grasped.

Floral Studies

This ongoing work in progress is a study of light, color, and form, calling upon the history of still life, evoked with a minimal number of elements used sparingly.

Post Meridian

Meridian is a word that functions in different realms: time, direction, the literary, and medicine.  Time: noon.  Direction: relating to or situated at a meridian: the meridian moon. Literary: of the period of greatest splendor or vigor.  Medicine: in acupuncture, one of twelve pathways in the body through which vitality is said to flow.

In his book, Italian Hours, in which he described his youthful Grand Tour of Italy, Henry James remarked thus: “In Siena, everything has moved past its meridian.”

Ars Longa

A museum in our minds, we each carry one. Or several. Perhaps yours is an art museum.  Or perhaps not.  Not all affinities can be shared.  But that’s okay, too.

The permanent collection, in this museum in our minds, is never fully on display.  The viewing hours can be eccentric as well, since the permanent collection is a personal one. Rules of ownership apply. (Just say it - not all can gain admission.) Some works  remain hidden deep in storage vaults.  Others suffer damage in need of  careful restoration.  The permanent collection is being painstakingly curated and acquired over a lifetime. Not everything in the permanent collection is a masterpiece, but not every piece needs to be, either.

Oh!  But the ones that are!

Evidence Found

". . . And those who find you/bind you to image and gesture.

I would rather sense you/as the earth senses you . . . "

- Rainer Maria Rilke, The Book of Hours, II, 15
