The Physical Distance Diaries
When physical distancing and shelter in place orders were put in place, my lack of commute and reduced teaching schedule meant I could be in the studio far more. I began making a piece of artwork a day, a written reflection accompanying each collage. Initially this was a 30 day Art Quarantine challenge taken on with a former student, but I have continued. The Physical Distance Diaries are all mixed media pieces using my monotypes, paint, ink and and old book on Marie Antoinette's failed flight out of Paris. Simple rules and materials, but transformative in these fraught and troubled times. Creative structure for the win once again.
For now, just the images are here on the website, in chronological order. Eventually I will add the text that pairs with each piece, but for now you can read that over on my Instagram page.
