That Space Between Flying and Falling

Next month I’ll be opening a major solo show, my largest to date, featuring thirteen of my cut silhouette paintings created together as an immersive installation. Viewers will walk between and among pieces hanging from the ceiling and casting shadows on the walls and floors. The exhibit will include an atmospheric sound component composed specifically for this show, as well as watercolor sketches and maquette studies.

The works in this exhibit elude conventional categories in art. They’re paintings, but they present themselves in space without a frame. They’re sculptural objects casting shadows, but they’re flat. They’re conceived of and created together, in a way that an installation is not usually composed of paintings.

Call and Response at VSC

Tonight a most wonderful thing happened. A group of 14 visual artists and writers, being supremely generous with their time and creativity, participated in a collaborative project I coordinated here at the Vermont Studio Center. I offered them each their choice of miniature cut-silhouettes, the ones I cut at Danger!Awesome to use as studies for my larger pieces. Asking them to use it in any way they wanted to make a new piece, and knowing what an outstanding group of people this is, I still could not have imagined how each person would put themselves into the project. If my work involves world-building, these artists showed me 14 new countries in this world. I’m blown away. 
As my new friend Gary Hawkins said, “Better Art Together.”

Work shown by Alison Stine & Molly Gallentine, Sharron Diedrichs, Aaliyah Gupta & Staci Schoenfeld, and Judy Schneider.
