I was recently an artist in resident at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT. It was a great experience with tremendous support for artists and writers. Everyone who attended are so talented and smart. It was a pleasure to meet them all and share experiences with them.
I made a new series titled, "Flora". All works are oil on BFK Rives and they will become a larger series when I return to Arizona. While in resident, I researched invasive plants as a subtext to the paintings, which then led to overconsumption of plastics. So basically, these paintings have two metaphors running alongside them.
