If you haven’t been to the Museum of Art and History (MOAH) in Lancaster, CA, you should go.
And I’m in it! Or rather, my largest and most ambitious piece to date—DREAM INVENTORY—is:
DREAM INVENTORY is inspired by my fascination with the mysterious forces that hover on the boundaries of the rational world—dreams and premonitions, the afterlife and the subconscious, memories and desires. Suspended on nearly-invisible threads, forty-six hand-sewn pieces sway in reaction to the viewer. Narrative fragments, symbols and gestures repeat, connect and respond—an ongoing transmission in search of revelation.
I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share some of my favorite FRAGMENTS. These bits and pieces incorporate secrets, hopes, fears, highly personal bits of mental detritus, ‘automatic embroidery’ and experimentation and exploration of different materials and techniques. They are purposefully imperfect, defiantly human.
Each fragment is individually suspended on invisible thread, and the pieces moves / breathes in reaction to your body as you move near it. There is something magical and otherworldly about the experience.
Other incredible artists in the show:
Lisa Solomon (one of my earliest art crushes)
And many, many others…
Up through July 21.
