My Own Private Moon 2016

My Own Private Moon curated by Karrie Ross September 2016

My Own Private Moon curated by Karrie Ross September 2016

This is the final hanging of the show. Deceptive it might have been with my request to paint a Moon. My curatorial vision extended not only to from the individual Moon work being created but to the final hanging of sets and the vibration of the coming-together.

The Moon theme was suggested to me about a year ago after a piece I did for the Waterworks II show in Ojai finished so beautifully, the connection I had with water, the moon, science interaciton, global warming, axis changes, and the human element spurred me on and extended my vision. My focus all along was for a traveling show, Galleries, Museums, college galleries, public spaces, please contact me with any interest, I have several ideas for extended iterations planned.

So Happy to have been included in this years show put on by the Friends of Redondo Beach. Thank you for including me.

Soft Sculpture Installation: “In-Between” — We live our lives in the in-between… birth to death; morning to night; breath to breath; thought to thought not really aware of the power it holds. Time enters and leaves a door open for that “something” to happen and we live, we see, we observe, we choose, and change… in the “in-between” of the “what-is”.

We find ourselves literally squishing “stuff” into that time opening, sometimes to over-flowing into over-whelm. Continue reading
