I was in Mexico from November 2022 until early April 2023 where I walked empty beaches early in the morning, worked in my garden until mid-day and in my studio in the afternoon.
Solo exhibition at CMS Projects on Artsy.net October 26 - November 29, 2022.
Adrift echoes the quiet, contemplative experience of watching the shifting compositions of objects within water along shorelines. Whether in a canoe on a river, sitting on a dock by a lake or resting by tide pools in Mexico, the arrangement and rearrangement of natural forms calms and allows the mind to drift.
Thinking explored in the work includes similarity and difference in repetition within collection, spatial positioning and meaning, and notions of personal identification with objects in place.

I, myself responds to a burl of wood that is part of a collection gathered while walking within woodlands and along shores. Individual natural objects in the collection provide a portrait of a time and place as well as an opening to other memories within the sensuous curves of the forms.
