Art Work in 3 Dimensions

From time to time I make sculpture.
I've never shown it and have little of it left in my possession.

Erat Hora

"Thank you, whatever comes." And then she turned
And, as the ray of sun on hanging flowers
Fades when the wind hath lifted them aside,
Went swiftly from me. Nay, whatever comes
One hour was sunlit and the most high gods
May not make boast of any better thing
Than to have watched that hour as it passed.

the show referred to in the previous post, of 33 minutes ago, took place in
September 2011



In September of 2013, a show of my encaustic paintings opened at Augen Gallery. Each of the paintings was a view onto landscape: mountain ridges or shoreline. Some were based on personal experience of that landscape, honed out of furtive memory. Others were based on an idea of a landscape. One came about through a disinterested exploration of forms; only toward the end of the process did a vivid sense of a particular landscape memory take hold in my mind. In a later posting I will explore these processes.
They are made with encaustic medium, paper and ink collage, gold leaf.

Show Statement

know the silence of things,
and the radiance of things.

the light of space;

and the ringing quiet of space.

mind meets the world;

mind and hand and

materials make

color and form.

lake as it is.

rock as it is.

if you interpret
explain, you miss.

just look; be

in your body mind

eye and just be.
