I'm Leaving the Lab for a Couple Weeks


I'm putting the glue away and cleaning up my work table this morning.  The tiny scissors will be hitting the road for awhile, will see you again in mid-March.

To the Birds

I have bird-related pieces appearing in two different shows for the next couple months.  There always seems to be room for a bird or two...

Patric Stillman and The Studio Door in San Diego, CA, have put together an intriguing exhibit called "The Crow Show," which includes a variety of pieces in different media featuring crows.  My pieces include an artist's book I titled 16 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird, and a collage piece called Clarice, Raised by Crows, Was Ashamed of Her Human Face. You can see other pieces from this exhibit here.

In mid-March, an exhibit called "Arte de Avian" will open at the Tubac Center of the Arts in Tubac, AZ.  The exhibit celebrates "the beauty and spirit of birds and bird-watching," and will include two of my bird-ladies:
 Catharina Baart Biddle and Eight Canaries

It's All Black and White To Me

Kollage Kit recently had a week of black and white collages, which always seems to be a favorite with everyone.  Here are two recent ones done for that theme, plus a couple old ones.

Map Girls

I like maps because they lie,
Because they give no access to the vicious truth...

---Lines from a poem called "Maps" published in New Yorker Magazine, April 14, 2014.  These lines were written by an 88-year old Polish poet Wislawa Szymborska, who received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1996.  This is the last poem she was writing at the time of her death in 2012.
