I’m updating my blog to include some images of work from the past few months!

These are installation shots of Flag III, another iteration of the thorn flag, installed in the offices of the Mid America Arts Alliance in Kansas City.  I am so pleased that this work will be up through the end of the year, and I am thrilled that it is  part of the dynamic work environment of MAAA.

I am really pleased to have a second iteration of the thorn flag,

Flag II  in a group show at Haw Contemporary. It opens on December 12 and will be up through January 24.

I hope you’ll have a chance to stop in and take a look.  It should be a great show!

I have had a recent exhibition with artist, Jung A. Woo, at Cara y Cabezas Contemporary,  I Am An American!

We are exploring the cacophonous nature of democracy and Jung A’s work  engages the sense of immigration/global migration in the American landscape.

Here are a couple of images of my piece,  Untitled (flag) .  It is made of thousands of  thorns from the honey locust tree

and is approximately 7′ x 12′.  While I was influenced by the contentious political environment during the 2012 election, others have referenced  painful

aspects of American history, and still other viewers have regarded the piece as a comment on the infusion of religion into political life.

Crosshatch III

I am very exited about this new piece that I recently installed. It is a commission for a private collector.  It is made of honey locust thorns and is approximately 9′ x 30″.  I think of this as a kind of landscape informed by my artist residency at Youkobo in Tokyo.
