Burlington City Arts
I’m excited to take part in this state-wide show that discusses the land in new ways. Jessica Langley, Judy Natal, Olivia Kaufman-Rovira, and John Douglas will also be showing at the BCA Center in downtown Burlington.
135 Church Street Burlington, VT 05401. Opening September 19th, 6pm
The night before, we’ll be giving slide shows about our work in Burlington City Hall as part of the roving, global artist “chit-chat” night called PechaKucha. 20 images, 20 seconds each. Superfastchichatit’llbefun.

This is what I’ll be riding for about three weeks, starting tomorrow. I’m sure the packing method will change considerably in that time. So much weight to take out of these panniers…
I like dealing with time and space. That sounds vague, I know, but the two are inextricably linked (timespace) regardless of society’s general demeanor that they are separate entities. “Time” accretes in space with layers, material, culture, people, etc -the most elemental word to describe it would be motion. Our rotation around the sun creates a cyclical sequence of events, not a linear progression of time. I aim to find a chink in the armor of this time convention.
Right now I am creating sculptural work that embodies specific motions, gesture and traditions by creating traditional and ancient (neolithic, paleolithic and otherwise deeply “BCE”) forms with new, highly manufactured materials: Poly Vinyl Chloride, Stryofoam, Nylon, Flourocarbon, High Density Polyethylene, etc. etc. These petrochemicals speak of a complex “here and now” and will, ironically, last forever (or 10,000 years, whichever comes first). By merging these industrial materials with deeply traditional human forms the resulting objects hover in a non-time space.
These will be on view in September at Buoy Gallery.
