Creating ever taller suspensions— I love the way previous work can be used with recently created pieces and reconfigured in infinite new combinations.

Very Large Array prototype

Well, perhaps not extremely large, but the biggest and tallest e*graphics grouping yet! Catching the glow of the afternoon sun, the tallest suspensions measure over 6′. {Note on March 13, 2018: these were the first of the large creations that eventually evolved into the VLA piece I created for the Permanent Collection of the Encaustic Art Insitute in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Photos of that installation are soon to come.]

Early Light

Photographing e*graphics can be tricky… they come alive when the light shines through them, but that same illumination can take over the light meter on a camera. Early and late light (along with using the camera’s manual settings) offer moments to capture a creation at its best and this morning’s sun cooperated beautifully.
