Studio This STUDIO section features ongoing collaborative projects and unfinished individual works which will be updated as they progress. GAZETTEER Integrating text by Berkeley-based poet and essayist C.S. Giscombe, with my take on what constitutes a map, my collages are visual manifestations of his dreams about travel. LIFT BLADE PLOW Mailing scrolls of rice paper, back and forth from where ever we might be, this collaboration with Shenzhen-based ethnographic anthropologist, Mary Anne O’Donnell suggests contact improvisation. Long Time Coming / Long Time to be Gone A book made up of large sheets of fine water color paper, on which I paint, draw and apply collage, describing things I didn’t know I knew, or that I still don’t understand. On the Road An itinerant existence requires a portable “studio,” in which to explore ones travels and destinations. The 68 page spreads in On the Road, combining mixed-media collage, paint, oil crayon, and ink, often seed ideas for other works. More Drawings Living nearby, I often go and draw from a perch overlooking the Negev. Listening to the silence, observing the landscape, is my version of a silent retreat. Pursuit of Loneliness A large drawing about a lot of things, that has been taking an inordinately long time to complete. Kriah Quilt Honoring the custom in Jewish tradition to rip the garment of the bereaved to mark the irreparable rending of grievous loss. Here I reassemble, with countless hand stitches, that which was torn apart.
