I’m starting off 2013 with an exhibit at AS220 in Providence, Rhode Island. It’s a new body of work for me and touches on REVEALED and several other projects I have explored the past few years. The primary exhibit is based around my Blocked Chakra series I recently completed.
I have also set aside space with journal entries that shares the “behind-the-scenes” thought and emotional process of creating these projects. This includes my original journal entries that explored what turned into REVEALED. It’s a very personal exhibit. The artist statement:
Exploring the inner depth of self – mine and yours
Over the course of several years, I’ve taken a journey within – helping me discover more of who I am personally and creatively. I’ve created several projects exploring the depths of the inner self, both mine and yours. As these projects were created, I realized I could capture and project emotion and spirituality through photography. This process changed who I am, and along the way, changed my subjects and others as well. This series of creative photography displays the depth and breadth of our own spirituality, emotional journey, and along with the paradoxical truth that we are all connected.
The exhibit is at the Main Gallery for AS220 at 115 Empire St, Providence, RI. This is a joint exhibit with artis John Jacobson.
2011 fly by with a tremendous amount of REVEALED news and activity. A book is now in production, art exhibits, and REVEALED additions…which happen to only be REVEALED Class subjects. This is a branch of REVEALED that I am very excited to see grow. In 2011 I photographed a class of 5th graders in the Spring and then a class of 4th graders in the Fall. The project begins by me visiting the class and meeting these eager students that are excited about a new art project… And maybe even having a guest artist. 🙂 I return to the class two weeks later to photograph the children with their self designed REVEALED boxes that they get to keep.
I just posted the latest addition of 30 fourth graders and two of their teachers. More about the process and experience is available here.
