Indoor, Outdoor—A Murmuration of Small Things I Love

2014

 

Small Challenges—

 

How long it takes to create a piece is a question I never seem to have a straight answer for, mostly because I work in multiples and bounce from piece to piece to navigate impasses.

 

In late November 2014, in anticipation of the holiday season, I challenged myself to make work, start to finish, in an hour—not counting the time it took to work through vexing hanging and label printing woes.

 

The result? A liberating and evolving series of compositions I call “smalls”. I don’t know where this will lead.
