This spring MINUS SPACE presents Lodestar, a new group of monochromatic objects intended to anchor and orient us in the world. Created from found rocks collected in personally significant locations, these pieces engage our surroundings through a lens of color-based and material-based reduction and a commitment to the power of monochrome. The Lodestars merge the natural and the manmade: a fusion of the natural world with human practices, perceptions, materials, and desires. Three-dimensional glass objects are hand-cast in a kiln using molds made from existing rocks: a transformation that imbues them with the wonder of alchemy. Two-dimensional silhouettes composed of silk chiffon on wood panels trace the energy and elegance of the rocks’ particular contours. Each Lodestar is a unique expression that amplifies the essence of the found rock from which it is made.

My gratitude to MINUS SPACE for presenting these new works and to Steve Easton Cast Glass for expert fabrication of the glass objects.

Time is a Healer
Liliana Bloch Gallery
Dallas, TX
February 11 – March 11, 2023
Artist Salon: February 11, 4pm
Opening Reception: February 11, 5-7pm

Liliana Bloch Gallery will present a new group of works that combine the formal elegance of geometric abstraction with the sensual allure of varied material surfaces. Stable, symmetrical right triangles are presented through the material expressiveness of glass, felt, paint, aluminum chain, and Plexiglas to explore the intersection of grief and gratitude. Each work explores the beautiful contradiction of engaging our messy, amorphous experiences through a language of reductive hard-edge abstraction.

Exciting news!  I’m honored and delighted to receive a 2020 grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation in support of my work. 
My deepest gratitude to the Foundation for their generosity.

A solo exhibition continuing the reductive exploration of light, color and material, and placing added emphasis on the behavior of light in relation to color and space. The exhibition includes a combination of fine art and commercial materials employed for their inherent physical characteristics: the expansive glow of fluorescent Plexiglas, the subtle movement of vinyl curtain, the delicate translucency of sheer fabric.

BAU Institute Residency
During June 2011 I spent several weeks in Otranto, Italy as a Fellow in Residence with BAU Institute. The residency provided me with the time to reevaluate my relationship to reductive art making and to contemplate the amazing catapult balls located in the Castle of Otranto.

Thank you, Rhode Island Foundation!
I am a very grateful recipient of a 2011 Robert and Margaret McColl Johnson Fellowship from the Rhode Island Foundation. This $25,000 merit award supports my development of new work.
