Talismans (52)New work using previously developed ideas, images, techniques or artwork in a repurposed image. Some work has been revised from a previous incarnation; some use only parts to create new images or compositions; some are reinventions of ideas and images filed away, that are now informed by current ideas and concepts. Images are arranged with the most current first.
Grid Variations (21)Drawings, paintings, collages and rubbings that explore various ways to portray a grid, either as a found, accidental image or a purposely fashioned composition. Working with the grid has been a fascinating part of my artwork for many years.
These works are 'stories' based on items found while walking around my neighborhood. The items suggest vignettes of the people who currently live and work in this area, with parallels to the rich history of this working class neighborhood.
