The MFA’s at Waterloo are having an Open House. Details here!
A friend of mine, who I met at Puppet Camp two years ago (and is starting again this week), chooses a word as a theme every year. This year, I have decided to try it out.
My word for 2016 is Care.
Take care. Take care of. Take care of it.
Care for. Care for self, care for others.
Careful. Not to be hesitant, but to be considerate.
This will be my mantra for the year. Hopefully 2016 will be a good one.
I’m not really sure why I’m posting this- you can see that my website has a new design.
I’ve also uploaded images of new work.
One more semester to go, and (hopefully) I’ll have a brand new Masters degree.
I’ve been doing some projection tests in order to figure out what’s possible for my thesis show. Here are a few of the more interesting pictures.
Below are giant projections of my studio space.
I’ve been taking a lot of photographs as I’ve been working in the studio lately, and thought I’d share a few. That’s about all I have time for at this point in my MFA. (Hopefully sometime I’ll be able to give this site a little more of the attention it needs.)
This piece is getting really close to being finished. And, wow, realizing how much my work has changed.
As a condition of participating in the Shantz Internships as part of my MFA program at the University of Waterloo, we are required to give a presentation about our experience after we return. This year, the department live streamed it, so, you can watch it online.
I spent the summer in Cologne, Germany, working with Alexandra Bircken.
….Just needed to post this. 🙂
A few Sad Selfies for your enjoyment. These are a small selection from about 150 locations.
Returned! Very happy to be home and back in the studio!
I returned from Europe one week ago, Friday the 10th. Soon happy to be home, although Europe was wonderful! I visited as many places as I could – Cologne, Barcelona, Vienna, Amsterdam, Venice, Brussels, London and Paris. Phew!
I saw lots of things- the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, Manneken Pis, Park Guell, Cologne’s cathedral, etc, etc. and lots of art! Lots of historical art in the Louvre, Musee d’Orsay, Tate Modern, Mumok, the Albertine, etc, etc, etc. Marianne and I went to the Venice Biennale (which was awesome!) I saw the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy, shows of Joseph Cornell and Henry Darger, Tracey Emin, Egon Shiele, and many more interesting exhibitions. I visited my family in the Netherlands, and an old friend in London.
It was a lovely trip. Some highlights:
