Untitled (We Could Live Here)
mixed herbs, mixed floral textiles, cardboard, wood, bedding, bean bag chair


For a festive festival I thought I would make a festive chair.

When you sit in the chair the bundle hanging overhead is stuffed with lavender, cloves, mint, raspberry leaves, and rose petals. I was hoping to make a soft soothing tactile and olfactory experience juxtaposed with a more active visual experience.


A trap? Come and sit and talk to me.
I don't really know how to start a conversation smoothly.

Yes, I try to work hard for us, I am so glad you noticed. You can stay as long as you like but remember you need to share.

When you leave you leave a little bits of yourself on the chair, thank you.

wishful thinking



A couple of weekends ago I went to see Petah Coyne's Everything That Rises Must Converge currently on view at Mass MoCA in North Adams, MA. This is the first time that I have seen a large body of her work in person, and I couldn't believe at how much I was pulled in by the textures and forms of the sculptures. I have only up until recently seen documentation of her work in books and on the internet and was always interested in the way she blends nature, the domestic, art history/history, and the personal. Seeing Coyne's work in person really brought out the the painstaking amount labor and attention to detail in the sculptures that for me pushed the themes she works with further.

wood, hay, soil, tar, black sand, white powder, silk flowers, wax, pins, velvet, taxidermy, ribbons, hair, wire, feathers

I swooned.

The work will be on view through February 2011.


Next Saturday, August 14th, I am participating in AS220's FOO Fest 2010 in Providence, RI. I am so happy to get to participate with an installation. AS220 will be presenting for the first time its' Free Culture Award. This years recipients are Shepard Fairey & Brandon Edenswill. ESG is playing and I am very excited!

AS220 is a non-profit community arts space located in downtown Providence. They are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. Their mission is "to provide an unjuried and uncensored forum for the arts. If you live in the state of Rhode Island, you will get an opportunity to exhibit or perform at AS220."
