A Bed of Verbs, 2014. A collaboration with artist, Brooke Holve. To be shown for its first time at Codex V at the Craneway Pavillion in Richmond, February 8th – 12th.
I travelled to Iceland with artist, Brooke Holve for an artist residency during the summer of 2012. We were awed by what we saw; the geologic wonders and phantasmal forms gave us a glimpse of what the earth might have been like in its beginnings. Iceland was a “land of the verb” with underground rumblings randomly spewing out steam, lava and rocks through pockets in the earth.
A land of forces not seen with verbs to describe it: bhedh, burns, chills, churns, coils, cracks, crusts, cuts, erupts, oozes, pads, posts, roots, scalds, scrape, spews, sprays, steams
Transitions at Marin Community Foundation Offices
Artists typically make several transitions throughout their careers, for example changes in medium, studio space, subject matter, etc. Transitions focuses recent works from "mature" artists representing transitions in their (our) lives both metaphorically and literally.
In my work, I have worked to integrate feelings about nature and the environment with my interest and fascination in the possibilities of digital technologies available to artists. In an effort to integrate my film work with my 2D work, I have also begun to include more specific narrative content, sometimes by a written "story" on the label and sometimes written on the back of the canvas.
