ABOUT

I have lived and worked in Harlem for the past thirteen years and exhibited widely in the neighborhood. I have participated in group shows with Casa Frela, HOAST, the Harlem Open Artist Studio Tour, SAC, the Strivers Art Circuit, and an exhibition at Columbia University Medical School – The Changing Face of Harlem.  My 2012 solo show with Chashama, Creases and Flecks on the Map, took place at the 461 Gallery, also in Harlem.  In 2014 I took part in Self: An International Juried Exhibition of Woman's Self Portraiture at Slippery Rock University, Slippery Rock, PA.

 

In the 1980s and 90s, I participated in dozens of group exhibitions in Soho and the Lower East Side of New York including ABC No Rio, Public Image Gallery, White Columns and Stephen Rosenberg Gallery among many others.

 

I am represented in the UK with ArtDog Gallery, London. 

 


INTERIORS

My paintings of furniture and empty rooms show a single, deeply considered image.  There’s a personal sense of time and the reach of memory that brings out the implicit nature of these pieces.

 

The paintings of furniture are broken down roughly into three parts - the object, the wall and the floor.  The empty rooms are concerned not only with the geometry of the space but also the air contained within.  The painted surfaces are layered with color, creating a sensation of light and carefully balanced tones.  Each visual element, air, object, wall and floor, takes on an equal relationship and importance, focusing to one single image representing time, space and place.
