Mark your calendars for the upcoming Moonstruck exhibit presented by Coastal Printmakers-a local group of dedicated Boston South Shore printmakers. Above is a detail of the monotype that I am submitting entitled Lunar Garden which was pulled just this past Monday. It’s currently being framed at Stanhope Framers with a very contemporary, hand-crafted frame. To see the rest of the print please visit the exhibit which runs from Oct. 5th thru 30th, 2012, at the James Library and Center for the Arts in Norwell, MA. Meet local printmakers at the Opening Reception on Oct. 5th, from 6 to 8 p.m.
My personal pieces have been evolving for the past few years-maybe it’s my Saturn returning? My love for printmaking has drawn me in and my work has taken a focus on botanicals and gardening. Einstein has a quote that resonates with me-“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better”. My goal is to get lost in the moment to create art that comes from my spirit. One of my greatest inspirations is Cy Twombly and his great paintings and photographs. Currently there are two exhibits of his at the Gagosian Gallery in New York. The simplicity and beauty shine through.
