My artwork references the human condition—the fact that we alter the surface of the planet in both strange and beautiful ways.
I had the opportunity to view Catherine Wagner’s exhibit, Archaeology in Reverse, at the Mills College Art Museum. The show was brilliant. Utilizing both the interior and exterior space of the gallery, Wagner deconstructed the bones and the living history of the museum through photography and aperture installations.
I received my Master of Fine Arts—Intermedia from Mills College in 1973, and it was great to be back on campus. As Wagner's exhibit intended, the walls were indeed talking! So many wonderful memories of being immersed in the Mills creative community and studying with legends like composer, Robert Ashley. Here are a few photos, past and present:
