September 2007 Show
A Candle In the Night
181 Main Street
Brattleboro, Vermont
opening: 9/7 5:30-8

"Aurora" , 42 x 78, first hung on the wall like a physical door for awhile until I turned it horozontally, which is it's present position and one that reads more specifically about inner doors. The process of painting a larger canvas involves the whole body: one can't sit down with it but rather one has to move, engage, shuffle, step widely and dance with it. Perhaps "Aurora" is too easy a title based on color but the layers and layers and scraping and painting again have something to do with our daily comings and goings, our questions and mostly our unknowing. "Aurora", dawn, beginning again, maybe is the right title, a second chance, every day.
