For the Love of Gaia

 It is timely to announce I am taking part in the exhibition “For the Love of Gaia” at the International Quilt Museum Nebraska with a new work ‘The Downs: Wind Torn’. The exhibition was conceived by guest curator Luana Rubin in partnership with the museum and until the doors are open (scheduled for August ) you are welcome take a virtual tour.

Art Under Lockdown

The internet gives us access to all the art we could possibly want to see. But it cannot replace the visceral experience of coming face to face with an artwork. That suckerpunch of being hit by a painting just can’t happen via a computer or phone screen. Every submission I opened on my email led to an exclamation of ‘oh wow!’ but I know that seeing these pieces in real life would be an immeasurably more intense experience.
