I am continuing a productive stretch but wish that I could be completing physical prints of my new work, something that is out of bounds for me until the quality facilities I need are again open to me. Still, I am pleased to preview the following for you. Click on any image to open in image viewer.
Silence. Life within the new, close boundaries that COVID has set for us is quieter in all sorts of ways. Less traffic noise, more birdsong. Fewer live voices. But as May and June have shown us, the times are begging for our voices to be heard. At my age COVID makes makes joining together physically too risky. So I have struggled to put my voice of anger and of promise and of unity and of freedom into my work. But that work needs to be seen for the voice be heard. So I thank you for listening to the following.

Tick Tock Project Now on KickstarterI’ve decided to go the Kickstarter route for Tick Tock, a project on global warming that I’ve been thinking about for more than a year. Please visit the project page and consider sharing it, supporting the project, or both. I’d love to hear your feedback.
I am focused right now creating new work to submit for consideration for a high profile exhibition in Sweden on the architecture of memory. I like the general challenge of confronting an externally specified topic in my work, as I did last year for Fossil Fuel, which the City of Seattle purchased for its collection. Here are some photographic works that I expect to submit to exhibit in Sweden. All are works in progress but are probably close to their final forms.
