Artist Statement

I believe that making art is a form of research in which you can "think" with your feelings, and that you can learn from this process.  Sometimes, though, this possibility of knowledge seems to elude me and I find myself moving down blind alleys and putting paint on paper in a mindless, repetitious manner.  When this happens, I look to other artists for information and a way to produce a more accurate reading of what is going on in my world.  I borrow their expressive abilities, sometimes in a direct, literal manner, and sometimes in a more circuitous way and with tongue firmly in cheek.  In these large, mixed media works on paper, I combine drawings from various artists (Joseph Beuys, Philip Guston, Egon Schiele and others).  I use their efforts as the framework for an imagined conversation with my art-making partners.

Artist Bio / CV

I was born in Athens, Georgia and received a BFA in drawing and painting from the University of Georgia (1976), a MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University (1984), and a PhD in art history from the University of Georgia in 2008.

I am represented in Atlanta by Sandler Hudson Gallery.  I lived in NYC from 1984 to 1996, during which time I produced various solo projects (a White Room show at White Columns, Althea Viafora Gallery, Information Gallery, ID Galerie in Düsseldorf).  I also participated in numerous group shows.  I have been awarded a Pollock-Krasner Grant, and Fellowship Residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Cite International des Arts (Paris), Hambidge Center, and the P.S. 1 National Studio Program.

Prior to teaching, I worked as the Curatorial Assistant at the following New York City institutions: The New Museum of Contemporary Art, the Guggenheim Museum and Artists Space. I was formerly the Assistant Director of The New York Kunsthalle and the Gallery Director and Curator for the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. I currently teach at Georgia State University in Atlanta.

 

I consider myself a re-emerging artist (after years of working on a dissertation and living far away from a competitive art market).
