The piece on the left, From Once Broken © 2011, is in this show. This is one of my favorite pieces, perhaps because to me it is a piece that represents hope. We've all been "broken" from time to time in our journey through this world. However, as this image suggests, if we start anew from our brokenness, we can grow our way back to a fresh start.
The work in Sticks and Stones and Bits of Bone is work that examines the human experience. I have taken time to think about our common experiences in this life and have represented them through still life imagery. The show runs from August 20th - September 22nd and is in the Loomis Gallery at Mansfield University. It is quite an honor to have a show there as for me it will be a true homecoming to my alma mater. The opening is on August 30th from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM. I'll be doing a gallery talk at 5:30. I hope you can come and enjoy what promises to be an interesting evening.
