New online interview with Canvas Rebel, December 2023

Interview excerpt:

Can you share a story from your journey that illustrates your resilience?

Like many, my story of resilience is a Pandemic story. I was completely paralyzed, in shock, for the first three months of lockdown. During Month 4, I suddenly sprang into action, and I decided to use the time to the best of my ability.

I made some of my largest and most ambitious work during that 2+-year period. I had recently received some grant funding to make new large work, which proposal included an assistant for part of the process. The works I envisioned were too large to wield by myself.

During Covid, that was no longer an option. After some research, I bought two woodworkers’ outfeed tables and a small height-adjustable side table, to substitute for the extra pair of hands.

I ended up making some seminal works during that period, and I also developed a method of using stacked shaped matboard mounting base for a deeper 3-D effect. I later received more grant funding to professionally photograph and frame these works.

A satisfying stack of darkroom prints from a long printing session.

Work progress on Vintage Glassware photogram series

In the darkroom again, getting back to my long-delayed vintage glassware photogram series.

Photograms are made without a film negative; rather, an object is placed on the photographic paper and exposed to light.
