Ready to Hang
"Becoming" is the transition from concrete to animate, via the flutter of butterflies. One of the first pieces that I began to use fabric and other 3-dimensional components. The hardened tulle cascading from the slouching statue is held in place by a blue crystal. It was hard to cover the detail of the butterflies, but necessary for the concept of the piece. Is the dove on top of the throne concrete or animate? What about the dove at her feet. You decide.
Tulsa is my home. I've been painting for decades, and am active in the rapidly growing arts community here. I am the director of the gallery at our local Equality center, OkEq. Hanging a show is almost as fulfilling as creating my own work. I have a big complicated loving family, One big dog and one small cat.
