My work is positive

I believe in myself. 

I make things that are sometimes useful. 

I make things that are about being alive in this beautiful world, and about loving people and telling them so.

No talking or listening. No thinking. Nothing.

 There is a new minimalism that is concerned with the touch of the maker.  The materials lead and then the process itself is the source of poetic resonance.

An erotic space

The space between the lover and the beloved. 

Between I love you and I love you too. 

Approach and resistance.

the letter to Lydia

 The poem, the song, the picture, is only water drawn from the well of the people, and it should be given back to them in a cup of beauty so that they may drink.  And in drinking understand themselves.  Federico Garcia Lorca

Shapes and marks

And you find only the shape you already are but what if you have forgotten that or discover that you have never known.  

Margaret Atwood. (Looking in a mirror, the Journals of Susannah Moodie)

Beautiful Soul

 If we say anything original, we so often say it wrong and we will offend and hurt others.  On the internet this can be exhausting.  I must still get the work out, get the words out, get the stitches into the cloth.  

Remember the Beautiful Soul.  The dream of the beautiful soul brought into the real world that can carry us forward.  

All we have is our best idea.

In a mysterious wilderness


Travel cloth on the left.  Un-done bundle wrap on the right.   

We are in a mysterious wilderness outside the village of the ordinary.  Cy Twombly
