Harbor features selections from two threads of work that come directly from my 2012 trip to Geneva, Switzerland, the Harbor paintings and Crests.
The Poughkeepsie Journal ran a Q&A with me in its Enjoy! section last week. You can check that out HERE for a limited time.
The Harbor paintings and the Crests both embody structures of cradle and structures of capture.
The title of the show refers more to the verb form of the word Harbor than the noun, even as the compositional nature of the Harbor paintings were born from a reading of the harbor where Lac Leman comes to an end at Geneva.
The works here mine the elements of those things we hold on us and of those things that maintain a hold on us. Both groups of works emerged from the ebbing reflection of sights and experiences on my short residency in Geneva.
|l-r: bell/e, Onyx, brace|
|l-r: Emblem(posterior), Emblem|
The Harbor paintings are a fixed group of 15 works (2 are still in the works) all 20" x16", oil on canvas mounted on linen covered panels:
|H7 (love, dead)|
|Lolita, oil on panel|
|Onyx, acrylic on paper|
Lastly, I created a "trailer" for the exhibit which you can view HERE.
