My furniture-maker husband and I are working on a river-themed duo gallery show called "Riparian Zone" which will be on view in the spring of 2021. Like "papercuts," the show was postponed due to the C-19 pandemic. A selection of the cut paper artwork I created for that show was exhibited in the Tri-County Arts Council Gallery. Scroll down to view a couple of highlights, then the entire collection.
I always admire the huge cinnamon ferns as I paddle down the Chadakoin River in Jamestown, New York. The original plan was to create this piece from the angle seen from my kayak. It wasn't until I viewed one from above that I realized the amazing geometry of the way they form.
This 24 x 24 x 1" framed piece is the subject of a super-fast timelapse video showing it's creation, shown below.
Note: Riparian Zone has been rescheduled for 2021
I love watching the kingfishers who visit our pond in the summertime. (See video below) A loud rattle announces their arrival and then they sit above the water and watch for lunch.
I had some amazing cotton rag printmaking paper and used it to make the layers around this bird drawing. The drawing was done on paper applied to canvas. And of course, I had to add a feather! A lot of experimenting going on with this 20 x 20 x 3" deep one!
(wait for it....)
