Last week my body of work, Dichotomy, was featured on the blog, Muybridge's Horse. Immediately I was taken to this site because of its rich content with sharing artists working with concepts of nature, animals and their relationships to humans. I was first exposed to the blog about a year ago when creator and editor of the blog, Emma Kisiel, contacted me to share my work. We fell out of contact with one another for that year until we finally connected once again to put my images up on the site.
Happy to share a preview of my new, still in progress, work. If you want to see more just click here and check out my website! For a while now I have been wanting to make work about what it's like to live in a place where the winter season lasts for six months of the year, where there's sometimes only a couple hours of daylight per day. Cold weather is somewhat meditative for me, I find that I am often very still during this time of year.
Working Statement for Torpor:
Getting up in the morning it is dark, coming home at night it is dark, in the middle of the afternoon the sun makes a brief and unsatisfying appearance. As winter quickly approaches, I cannot help but drop into a state of suspended activity. I'm trying to wake up...
There are lots of deer out there this year. I almost ran over this one but instead managed to get this shot of her from outside my window. Hopefully all those hunters out there have a successful season and keep them under control.
Fall has arrived here in Wisconsin. Seems like it all happens at overnight. Just last week the high was 73º and now this morning when I woke up it was a balmy 27º. And of course I went on my annual October camping trip just in time for the temp to drop. Surprisingly, it only froze one night out of the four! But the weather was still plenty cold.
