Solo Exhibition

Lecture October 14 at 7:00 pm
Northwest Missouri State University
800 University Drive, Maryville, MO

“The works in this exhibiton evoke corroded objects, accumulated piles, forgotten things left to decay. Some are forms spiling out into space, others are composed, enclosed, keeping some of their secrets behind the surface. One can imagine these objects taking on lives of their own, the neglected memories and ignored histories pouring out of them and mixing—growing and deteriorating at the same time. Either documents of the past or reimagined fictions, these objects no longer communicate what they once did, but now explore the realms of remembrance and projection, nostalgia and evolution.”

I’ll be in New Orleans in July for Kolaj Fest, a coming together of collage artists and art professionals; a multi-day festival and symposium about contemporary collage and its role in art, culture, and society; where the focus is how we celebrate and elevate the status of collage. 

With artist Clive Knights, I’ll be presenting my work and leading a conversation about the role of metaphor within collage processes in a discussion titled Excavations, Destruction, & Accumulation.

I’ll also have copies of Cut Me Up Issue 3: Tabula Rasa on hand—hope to see you there!

Unfoldingobject Group Exhibition
June 20 through August 11, 2019
Opening June 20 6-8 pm
Panel June 26 6-8 pm
Concord Art, 37 Lexington Road, Concord, MA

Curated by artist and teacher Todd Bartel, Unfoldingobject showcases varying ways in which artists combine visual imagery to make collages.

The term “unfoldingobject” is a neologism coined by the Bartel, “to describe that quality in art that inspires repeat looking.” Bartel further describes, “I tried to pull together a group of collages that celebrate the importance of ‘listening to the picture,’ or champions a slow read, or otherwise reveal’s meaning through multiple viewings—artwork that unfolds messages and connections in time, rather than being immediately deliverable in an instant.”

Bartel points out, “collage is a celebration of unrelated and retrofitted images and materials that together produce a transformation; I’m fond of telling my students 1 + 1 = 3—One thing plus another thing equals a third thing.”
