*long one* So some of you know that I have been hibernating these last couple months after giving birth to the sweetest baby boy just before Thanksgiving. We’ve been enjoying these cold days together in the house. I’ve been thinking, dreaming, letting ideas percolate and showing my boy some of this winter’s first few snowfalls. For a while I have wanted to work with different weather patterns (ice? snowstorms?) and different formats like this circle. These winter storms feel like my mental state right now; quiet and still and white when you are in it but just as wild as any other storm out there. I’m excited to start letting some of these ideas develop and perhaps they will start to take form as I keep making my hurricanes (don’t worry, I’m not done with those yet 😉 you just might see some colder slower weather here as well!).
It’s been a busy year and my storms have taken themselves and me on some exciting trips around country. Highlights include the winter show in #Greensboro at GreenHill, the Print Center in #Philadelphia and three storms finding homes in public collections in #WashingtonDC. #bestnine. Looking forward to a creative new year 😊
So excited to see this install with Artists Circle Fine Art in DC! Loving the bright colors against the stormy gray walls. Proud to be included in the collection of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. #Repost @artistscircle with @get_repost ・・・ Current obsession recently installed at @aacrao! These pieces are inspired by the color coded radar maps that meteorologists use to track tropical storms and hurricanes. Each piece depicts an actual place in time and history. Pictured here are hurricanes Lisa and Karl. Mixed media screenprint, cut and stacked paper on panel.. ✨💦.
Watching this storm spin around all weekend. Seeing #Florence change in color and shape as she glides across our state. If you are in her path, I hope you are safe and dry. #piecesofflorence.
All kinds of Hurricane prep today in North Carolina. Spent the morning stockpiling some hurricane supplies. Spending the afternoon working on a piece of #Florence. I’ve been inspired recently to make some smaller works from different snippets of time within the same storm #piecesofflorence
Looking through some recent drawings and brainstorming for the Monster Drawing Rally next Friday at @ncartmuseum . Excited to participate with a bunch of other artists. My slot is at 7:00 pm. All art will be auctioned off for $50 that same evening to visitors. There will also be drinks and food trucks on site. Local folks- there’s a handful of tickets still available if you want to join in on the fun!
Tomorrow, 8/4 is the last day for #Considerableuncertaintyremains @theprintcenter. Thanks to The Print Center for the beautiful space and the chance to visit #philly again and remember all my years back at Tyler.
Final week to view “Considerable Uncertainty Remains” at @theprintcenter Philadelphia. All work on view until August 4th.
System VI Don: “Not Expected to Last For Long” ....... part of my show “Considerable Uncertainty Remains” on view @theprintcenter Philadelphia until August 4th.
To me, some of the most important parts of the storms are the pieces that are out of place. The moments that don’t quite fit. The blips on the radar. Whenever the storms feel too complacent, I try to find a way to displace the energy. #gaston
System XV Nicole: “Defied Forecasts by Steadily Organizing” (36” x 36”) on view in Philadelphia until August 4th with other storms at The Print Center. #considerableuncertaintyremains
Install shot of small storms from #considerableuncertaintyremains at @theprintcenter. On view until August 4th.
