Kari Simonsen and I were invited to do a small show at NIAD. We'll be showing new and collaborative works along with a site specific installation. I am really excited for this show and am a big fan of NIAD! The opening reception is April 13th 1-4pm. The run of the show is April 6th- 25th 2019.
Here is a little write up about the show by Kari Simonsen--
The pieces in this show gather together different reflections on the power of nutrients. Nutrients help sustain. This can be in the form of sustaining life, cultural traditions, memories, or sustaining a perspective. Repetition can sustain nostalgia, such as repeated lines meting out memories in shapes. The way bones are a depiction of life ended, but also of social status. A lot of the work depicts our own awareness of our cultures, with the hope that the pieces we create as a result become the nutrients for future cultures.
