I’m so pleased to have two of my pyrographs (burn drawings / works on paper) accepted into the Flat Files at Kentler International Drawing Space in Red Hook, Brooklyn.  This is a wonderful venue for works on paper as well as installation work.  If you are in the NYC area, stop by and take a look at the many exquisite works and exhibitions.

Below are details of two pieces, Untitled (silence) 2015 and Untitled (sound) 2016. These drawings are made with millions of tiny burn marks on heavy cotton rag paper. untitled-silence

Exhibition at the Volland Store

I currently have a one person exhibition at the Volland Store in the Flint Hills on view until October 16.  It is an amazing venue and I’m thrilled to have my work in this beautiful space  in this beautiful part of the country.   The work consists of a thorn wall installation, Flock, two bronze thorn pieces, and nine framed pyrographs or burn drawings. These pyrographs  were particularly inspired by the undulating Flint Hills and the burning of the prairie in the spring.  The honey locust thorns are found throughout the area and regarded with a mixture of disdain and despair!   The Volland is an extraordinary place and I’m thrilled to be showing my work there.

Directions:  Take I-70 west 25 miles past Topeka to exit 328 for Alma/99.  Drive 3 miles south to the center of Alma, turn right by the museum on the road headed west to Volland.  Continue 8 miles to the Volland sign, turn left, you’re there!

I currently have a series of pyrographs in the Flatfiles exhibition at H & R Block Artspace.  I think of these six works as a series of small poems.  Here’s an image from the series.Image

A series of my  pyrographs  will be displayed in a group exhibition at the Festival.

and then create a work to be auctioned off  Saturday, August 27, at Leedy Voulkos Art Center.

This spring I had two pieces in an exhibition at Cara and Cabezas Contemporary, a gallery in Kansas City.

They have an intern who periodically writes a blog entry about some of the work.

Here’s a link to the piece that Hallie wrote about my works
