The BRIGHT and SHINING LIGHT of IRREVERENCE


My first solo exhibition, title above, is on view in the Kalkin House at the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont from May 17th until October 25th. I'll be giving a gallery talk there on August 13.

Additionally, I've built another blog devoted to the installation THE SALON OF LOVE AND HORROR which is included in the show. The SALON is approximately 40 portraits done by a variety of artists from around the world depicting me as a human/animal hybrid:

some of the work included in the show:

FIVE PRINTS





2009, 12" X 17" each

A set of five prints based upon a suite of silhouettes in a bedroom of the Brick House located on the shores of Lake Champlain. The interiors are actual rooms from the Brick House, two of them from the doll's house.

BOTANIKOS print

A wallpaper design reminiscent of nineteenth century botanical illustration.

HEXAGONAL QUILT print

Also inspired by a quilt from the Shelburne's illustrious collection, also digitally-generated noise, this time in tessellated form.

SQUARE QUILT print

Inspired by a quilt in the Shelburne's collection, the squares are computer-generated noise fields.

FAUXNASETTI bar towels

An homage to the great Italian designer, these 5 bar towels are the country cousins of good design.

I was visiting friends in Burlington and was very happy to stumble on your work at the Shelburne Museum. Witty art and very well done. I love the toile pieces - so funny and excellent craftsmanship.
