A new series of mixed media pieces inspired by Land-Sky-Desert and Oceans entitled” Spiritual Horizons” and will be shown at New City Studio on First Friday, October 3rd in a group show entitled Land and City for more on the show visit https://www.facebook.com/newcitystudio

The mixed media pieces incorporate re purposed wood, casts resins, steel and light which have been my favorite media for the past few years.

This is my first time showing pieces incorporating phosphorescent powders in my resin casts. The effect is an eerie light emitted best seen in a darkened setting. Light is a central theme of my work and unlike previous works which concealed the LED light source, the new pieces incorporate an inner light energized by sunlight or other light sources. Unlike previous “steel boxes” housing my cast pieces, the steel stands take a secondary role, supporting the smallish landscape vignettes, yet notice the archetype in the shape of the stand.

Spiritual Horizons were inspired by my summer travels throughout the southwest visiting and observing deserts, mountains, skies and ocean vistas.  I have vivid memories of a critique from my two person show a year ago. Art critic and fellow artist Richard Bledsoe  mused “Light serves as a powerful metaphor of knowledge, clarity, warmth, spirituality”. My use of light as a media comes through a vastly different source from a year ago. Richard also observed and commented ” Somehow the small cubes seemed to enclose vast tracts of sky and earth”. That is the influence of land that I live.  www.stor-ybox.com

All the best
