Gushul Residency Studio

My collaborator Christopher Baldwin and I are happily in residence in the Gushul Studio in Blairmore, Crowsnest Pass, Alberta. It’s a historic “cottage” (read: airy studio with stunning views and generous living quarters attached) owned by the University of Lethbridge, and operated by that institution as the home of its artist in residence program. I’m read on…

Reno

P1300003

I’ve been having a tremendously good February in Reno, Nevada. I spent a month here for events related to my solo exhibition at the Nevada Museum of Art’s Center for Art + Environment. I dropped work off for the show at the beginning of the month, gave a public talk this week, and in the read on…

You Are The Doorway / ABQ OneBeat

P1100561

You Are The Doorway came together this weekend, as part of a collaboration between 516 Arts and OneBeat–more details about the event here. My piece, Homing, benefited hugely from an anomalous little niche in the vast space of the Yards’ Blacksmith Shop, where the pieces could be seen closely (and periodically poked at) but weren’t read on…

I’m planning to spend October 2015 doing creative research in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem as one of the artists-in-residence at the Teton Artlab in Jackson, Wyoming. I can’t wait to experience the place, and am tremendously excited.

There’s an upcoming show I’m in at the Albuquerque Railyards on November 1st–a one-night-only event of installation work–You Are the Doorway. (You can read about it here on the events page.)

If I can’t get back to Australia myself anytime soon, my work will have to return as my diplomats! I’ve been working on, and have just completed, two pieces for an upcoming show in Canberra, Imaginarium (which you can find out more about here on the events page). Each is graphite on paper, and 17″x13″. read on…

¡COLORES!

ColoresClip

I was fortunate and honored to have been lately interviewed for ¡COLORES!, a weekly PBS art series. The episode aired this week, and you can see it here. A huge thanks to Tara Walch at NM PBS / KNME-TV for using her time, talents and energy to put together a piece about my work that read on…

Ucross II

Grass Clothes

Here’s to Ucross, Wyoming, where I got to participate in a second mini-residency this summer. It was a wonderful and productive time, as last year; but my project was different this time, sinking me deeply into my surroundings. I made early pioneer-style costumes out of local plant materials, using a variety of techniques to render read on…

Notes from Sun Valley, #5 of 12

In October, only a few short months ago, I was invited to Ketchum/Hailey/Sun Valley, Idaho to do a project about tourism (specifically as it relates to Sun Valley) and the American road trip with the Sun Valley Center for the Arts. I was there for nine days, visiting local cultural institutions and sites, wandering the read on…
