I am excited to announce that I will be an artist in residence at Gallery263 this summer! The residency runs from July 8-August 24, with two public critiques and a culminating group show. Dates TBD.
For the past seven summers, I have had the opportunity to work with high school students during BU's Visual Arts Summer Institute. Each summer, I haul my art supplies to the 5th floor of 855 Commonwealth Avenue and set up a second home. The studio space I have used the past two summer faces east and has incredible views of downtown Boston.
When I was a student at BU, I remember being surprised at the amazing sunsets that I could watch from Comm. Ave. Living in a city can be disorienting and it's easy to feel disconnected from nature. I loved taking time each day to stop and enjoy the view.
The routine of going into the studio every day and seeing my work with fresh eyes is an exciting part of my process. I love being able to spread out my supplies and give myself time and space to find new connections between my ideas and materials.
Over the summer, worked on a few new bodies of work including Paper Quilts and Cycles. I am back in my apartment now and have been making some new Paper Quilts, working with friends to create new college pieces, and brainstorming some ideas for new projects. Stay tuned...
This is a series of images that shows the progression of Late Night Kitchen, an oil painting I am currently working on. The painting is based on a series of images I took from the kitchen of the apartment I lived in last year.
Although I recently had to move out of my summer studio, a friend of mine was gracious enough to let me store this painting at his place. Hopefully I'll get a chance to work on this a few more times before the end of the year...
This is the beginning of a painting that I started last summer. I'll be working on this over the next few weeks... I'm really excited about the shiny surfaces of the large industrial-sized metal fridges.
