    • November 28, 2023 Seeking the Wild
      Seeking the Wild For the past three months I have been working on Wild Stirrings: The Pier, a large-scale painting inspired by my regular visits to the Chicago lakefront just a few blocks away from my home and studio. Having such easy access to the shores of Lake Michigan and the natural habitat there has provided endless opportunities to observe and reflect upon the notion of the wild and what it means in our environmentally challenged times.

      Navigating New Directions Over the past few months, artists in the Re-Imagine: Expanding Studio Practices program have worked with the concepts of navigation and vibration to explore the essence of movement and energy in visual art and how it can be expressed through materials and processes.

      New Season, New Series

      During the month of September, artists focused on the concept of Extraction by selecting a specific area of an image made in the previous few months and developing a series from it. New works were constructed through multiple prompts that included working in a circular format, exploring new materials, methods, and surfaces, and infusing images with the spirit of contemporary artists of interest. The images below showcase these ongoing serial explorations.

    • August 25, 2023 Summer Swept
      Summer Swept Chicago comes alive each summer with its beautiful lakefront and breathtaking views of Lake Michigan, bright cerulean blue skies, plush canopies of trees, colorful gardens of all shapes and sizes, and a wonderful abundance of urban energy. As an artist drawn to warm weather and being outdoors, soaking in the endless visual displays of nature in combination with the city's built environment fills me up with a dizzying amount of inspiration to consider and explore in the cooler months ahead.
