on working very small.


├ętude 4
collage
7.5x3.5

after seeing the monumental size of the pieces at DIA:Beacon, it feels funny to come back to my tiny pieces. but i have such a good feeling about them. i believe i want the viewer to experience something very intimate with them, as one does with a beloved small object, a jewel, a favorite rock. i wish for each piece to become a favorite possession (not necessarily a piece to put on the wall.) a possession that one puts away carefully and takes out for a moment of pleasure or to share with selected friends.

a tiny piece

6x3.75

i think a common aspect in my pieces is the flight from reality. some art is a reflection on our times, some take a stand pro or against, some is politically involved. and it is all good. mine is a dream world where i can find solace from an anxiety producing world.

blues and yellows

7.5x5.5

of all the collages i am doing these days, my favorites are the "portraits". i like the way the background creates itself and add an unexpected dimension.
