GORHAM'S WEB 2019
Gorham's Web Is a site-specific interactive installation created as a commission for the RISD Museum, in response to their concurrent exhibition of Gorham Silver, Designing Brilliance. My installation included a hand-strung sculpture made from objects I collected on walks around the former Gorham manufacturing site, and a suite of large collages. There were also three reflective mylar "ponds" on the floor to represent the ponds around the Providence factory site; the landscape of my walks.
The suite of eight collages were produced with the public's help while I was the artist in residence for October 2019 Open Studios at the RISD Museum. The collages combined printed images from RISD's Gorham silver collection, my hand-drawn maps and images of my collected found objects.

I am so proud to be included in Person of The Crowd, The Contemporary Art of Flânerie, at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia.

It runs February 24th-May 22nd, 2017.

CALIFORNIANS COLLAGE COMMISSION 2016
Over this summer and fall of 2016 I was pleased to create five new collages for the collection of Bruce Menin, to be installed in his new building at 10,000 Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles. This was an unusual commission for me: The project was to create collage portraits of five notable California-born figures. My subjects were Isamu Noguchi, Julia Child, John Steinbeck, Isadora Duncan and Robert Frost.

SMACK MELLON SUMMER SHOW 2015
I am so pleased that my work Cypher (Sunset Park) is included in the summer exhibition Story of a Story, at Smack Mellon, curated by Shlomit Dror. The exhibition runs June 13 - July 26, 2015.
From the Press Release:
"In the exhibition Story of a Story, the artists are chroniclers who examine the relationship between language and narrative, truth and fiction, and between narrators and readers/listeners. The works in the show also pay close attention to the interpretive process that in turn offers an extension to the narrative and the work. Story of a Story’s thirteen artists present a range of narratives that are told through painting, sculpture, photography and video."
ARTSLANT PARIS RESIDENCY 2015
In January and February, 2015, I was the ArtSlant/Georgia Fee resident in Paris. On daily walks through all 20 arrondissements, I collected objects for a new installation piece, Tapestry. I wrote a series of essays for ArtSlant Paris, documenting the project and my experience. An archive of those bi-weekly essays can be found here.

SELECT RESIDENCY BLOG/WRAP UP 2014
As inaugural artist-in-residence for the Select Fair at Industry City from April through May, 2014, I explored the notion that the things we can afford to leave behind, to abandon, tell a story about a community. Throughout my time there I created a site-specific installation comprised of found objects collected on daily walks through the changing neighborhoods around Sunset Park and recently scrutinized Industry City. I invited friends and colleagues to walk and explore with me, and wrote about our adventures on the blog listed here: Project Blog
I so enjoyed talking to Samantha Katz at the Select Fair this spring, and appreciated her take on my residency in Whitewall Magazine
I am pleased to be the first recipient of the Select Art Fair Residency- I have been granted a studio in Industry City for the month of April, where I will create a found object installation comprised of things found on walks around the changing neighborhood of Sunset Park. There will be an open studio on April 26th, and I will present the finished work at the Select Fair in May during Frieze Art week. Updates to follow!
It was very kind of Gerard Louis Simonnet to include a selection of my collages on his art blog- Merci, Gerard! curieuxdetrucs
