Part of The Living is Easy: a series of projects by Struts & Faucet members

Dark Water, Dark Matter

“Miniature worlds, made visible through art, emerge through my studies of movement in dark water. Undulations leave ephemeral traces in our memories, delicate graphics that lurk above unsettling depths. Incised Plexiglass and painted plywood panels express this fascination with obscurity, mystery and unease.

My Living is Easy project will continue and expand my “Dark Water, Dark Matter” series of incised Plexiglass and painted plywood panels. I plan to exhibit the works already completed and continue constructing new pieces for the series in the Struts Gallery. Visitors’ feedback is welcome for the work in progress as well as the finished pieces on exhibit. In addition, other small panels from my “Garden” series will be on display.”
