Unfurl




Unfurl 
oil on 30 x 40" canvas

  I spent the year creating art on the edge of a cherry orchard. The landscape inspired paintings and mixed media work in a variety of sizes, including the series, Women in a Cherry Orchard. The above painting from the series was chosen to be part of the exhibition Spark. The show was sponsored by the Northport Art Association and Freenjoy, the producer who received a 2017 Grammy award for BeyoncĂ©'s Formation video.

Women in a Cherry Orchard

A series of paintings, drawings, and digital images. I translated this movement through an old industrial orchard, a haunted + complex space that has a long tradition in artistic, political, technological, agricultural, and mythological landscapes. A space where the wrong stories have been told for thousands of years; now a place of rebirth and revision.

Light Field


Instagram Handscroll 
Light Field
text + digital photography + artwork 

Over 50 paintings and drawings, 
including 4 hand-painted scrolls.

An odyssey between the passages of New Orleans and
a cherry orchard;
the unfurling Instagram piece takes direct inspiration 
from the vibrant tradition of East Asian handscrolls.
A touchscreen and paper remix of the ancient form 
onto the landscapes of the early 21st century.

Orchard
















The last in a series of four handpainted scrolls. Orchard was created in an old industrial cherry orchard,  as well as in the studio. The materials include cherry juice and branch, copper electrical wire, grasses, carmine ink, oil paint, watercolor, block print ink, and graphite on 144" x 30" cold press paper. The Instagram version is 33 squares of digital photography, and is part of the whole touchscreen handscroll, Light Field. It was posted in process as the painting was created. Improvisational.
