Unfurl




Unfurl 
oil on 30 x 40" 

 Unfurl is also the title of a current series of works on canvas and wood panel. I spent the year creating art on the edge of an abandoned cherry orchard, etched with the traces of industrial farming. The transient landscape inspired paintings and mixed media work in a variety of sizes. Unfurl was chosen to be part of the juried 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.

including 4 hand-painted scrolls.

An odyssey between the passages of New Orleans and
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park;
the unfurling Instagram piece takes direct inspiration 
from the rich 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.

Landscapes of the 21st Century

Instagram Scrolling Triptych 
touchscreen
text + digital photography + watercolor on 6x6" paper
created in the urban passages of New Orleans

& our stories begin like endings 
like the story of our century 
our century of time lapse & speed-
ing cumulous, our century of 
 travel & private publics, our cen- 
tury when for the brief flicker of 
static on ear we knew the absence 
of city as the long gesture of 
interstate glides toward futurity
...
& if our stories begin like end-
ings in being stories of our cen-
tury, the endings too begin, the
endings & the century during
which we watched our knowing growing &
the beauty of the body came to
exist in motion. The stasis of
day-to-day washed us clean as the 
spaces between rain. Drops. & making
puddles of the page.

Two excerpts from the poem, Seaming by Dan Thomas-Glass // Daughters of Your Century
The poem also includes mention of my On the Seam paintings.
