Residency: May – June 2014
I used my time at Sculpture Space to create several layered paper works: some meant as discrete, wall- mounted reliefs and others for a installations. The work was shown in “No More Birds,” curated by Gina Murtagh at the Kirkland Art Center in Clinton, NY. It will be reconfigured and added to for an installation at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum in the fall of 2014. The wall reliefs incorporate paper from my residency at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. The material, the last of the artist's stock found at his studio after his passing, was dyed to a bruise, layered and carved into. The larger pieces build on an installations created in Provincetown, MA in the winter of 2014: Sweet Burrowing, OURENORMOUS HEREAWAYFROMHERE and FALLS, a collaboration with Mark Louque.
During my time at Sculpture Space I was awarded the NYC Parks Department's Clare Weiss Emerging Artist Award and used the facilities at Sculpture Space to develop my project "Uplift" for Sara D. Roosevelt Park in New York's Lower East Side.
