All Hung Up- Part 1

Midway through my exhibition at the Siegel JCC ArtSpace in Wilmington, Delaware, I thought I would post installation shots for all of you who live out of town or weren’t able to make the show- yet. It is up through May 9, 2013.

Entering the space from the lobby, the exhibition begins with this sign and large drawing on your left. 

My statement above reads:
Koi are a symbol of perseverance and strength of purpose.

My work is an ongoing exploration of what sustains us when adversity challenges us,
what moves us forward and binds us to the past and, what we find and keep and what
we leave behind. Akin to love and loss, images and materials swim together, drift, snag
and cast shadows shifting above and below the surface.

Seemingly unexpected connections emerge to reveal the fragility, beauty and grace of
our lives.

After Bait, you come to this corner…
