Reflect 3.1 was commissioned for a residential setting and features an abstract view of Mies Van der Rohe's 900/910 Lake Shore Drive buildings. The clients selected a sophisticated palette of black and silver grays in the foreground, varied with pops of whites and pale gray in the background. Shimmering glass catches light to offer a dynamic art piece in this lovely architect renovated mid-century modern home.
I'm delighted to be partnering with Boston Art with the architectural abstraction series, Reflect.
Great write-up about Boston Art in the August2017 Interior Design magazine.

With morning light comes infinite variability in color. Some mornings feature light filtered through clouds and reflected across the choppy surface of the lake. Views are changing moment-by-moment.Read More

You can see Reflect 2.34 | Curved at the Evanston Art Center through June 30th, 2017 as part of the monthlong EvanstonMade show.
Enjoyed working on a massive canvas for Evanston Streets Alive 2016 to offer pedestrians a moment of surprise. Grow transforms built world elements into organic, growing foliage. Realized in chalk, the piece offers an ephemeral experience, consistent with the constant change and transformation we find in nature. Living well in urban settings requires new ways of seeing beauty and staying connected to the natural world.
I have an image of ivy growing on a crumbling concrete wall in my studio. I love the image of nature connecting with the built world; constant change and transformation happening on different time scales. I often circle back around to 'how do I grow ivy on a concrete wall?' Working on the installation plan for a temporary street intersection mural brought me back to cement board as a gorgeous textured canvas perfect for my work in glass.
