The Immersive Fair

November 30, 2020

The future is upon us with Art fairs. We don’t have to travel, or dress up, or print or frame anything. We can just sit on our sofa in our sweatpants and “walk” down a row of booths at a fair. (Which has become my new favorite way to attend anything recently).
Two of my Impossible Line photographs will be featured in the Vellum Projects booth at Scope this week. Click to see the booth

The Impossible Line

November 30, 2020

This summer marked the 1 year anniversary of my father’s death. More than 10 years ago I started a photography series in which I titled, The Impossible Line. This series of photographs were inspired by my father’s life as a sailor and are all studies of where the sky and water meet around the world. The title, Impossible Line is a reference to the horizon line that can never be physically reached.

Paper Work

November 30, 2020

This Fall I had an opportunity to show both my Neil Armstrong pieces at the Mansion at Strathmore near Washington D.C. in an exhibit titled, Paper Works: The Art of Paper in the months September and October 2020.

The pieces were across from each other in the room and when I finally saw them hung I was able to capture the image below. Something I love about working with mirrors is finding new perspectives in and of my pieces. It is quite a wonderful feeling finding dimensions which you did not know were there.

Love in NYC

November 30, 2020

Start today (or tomorrow) with a little act of love and kindness.
The Mandarin Oriental (in Columbus Circle) made this heart shape using vacant hotel rooms. I’m loving the details of kindness that people in New York are exhibiting. They are everywhere- just look around and you will see them.

Lincoln Center Love

November 30, 2020

I feel so much happiness in something I love, creating a beautiful gesture for people I love. A beacon of light in these dark times.

Amnh under guard

November 29, 2020

American Museum of Natural History guarded by the police in fear of looters, (Never did it ever cross my mind that I would write that).
Taken June 10, 2020 -13 days before they decided to remove the statue that stood at the entrance for 80yrs. I realize now that we have ignored and accepted so much because we never thought it could or would change. Excited to see what our world is going to look like.

Light of Chinatown

November 28, 2020

I truly love the light in Chinatown. The mix of reflections and colors are so curiously captivating. Below are photographs of both directions of Mott Street in Chinatown on Tuesday Night at 8:30pm on 6.9.2020 and a photo of one of my favorite places the American Society of Buddhist Studies on Centre Street.

All of the Lights

November 28, 2020

What was incredible about taking photos at night during the COVID lockdown was simply- the light. The stark contrast between the vibrant saturated color and simple shapes against the darkness was extremely alluring. Even though we know why its possible for the night to become so black and why no one is around, you cant deny the stirring mysterious beauty.

COVID Nights 2: Small Town Living

November 28, 2020

I’ve always been fascinated with abandoned places. Ruins, theme parks, prisons, ghost towns. I’m always curious what happened there. How did the story end? These photos are of the main streets in the towns in the Hamptons. Usually flooded with people on Memorial Day weekend.
This last Memorial Day weekend they were almost totally empty. Eerily deserted and longing to be used.
