Inception: Life Emerges
Here on this fleck among the uncountable stars something takes form, eventually to wonder why we are and what to each other. This double-layered fiber piece is a direct expression of concepts that show up in most of my work—the mystery of organic life appearing and diversifying, whether from the sea or space or the primordial muck. (Linen, handmade paper, river stones, jasper beads, bamboo rod, 31″ x 36″ x 2.5″)
Crow: Pixels from 1985
Love at first sight—1985 in the University of Georgia art department, that little Mac with the small screen so the image was only visible in sections. Crow won an award from MacWorld that paid for my own Mac a couple of times over. It’s exciting to see here what people are doing with digital art now.
Message Caught in a Tree
A little wall hanging bearing the words of a fictional postfuturist sage named Aforista (alias Wim Coleman)—”Are you awake or just pretending?” (Handmade paper, linen, river stone, twig, 16x12x2.)
