I should have more time to blog a little more frequently after Hours & Tides opens tomorrow! This approaching deadline has been a good stimulus to make sure that creating happens in my studio as well as in the classroom where I teach. In fact, the value of time and our choices in using it are some of the major themes of the show. Here is a snippet from my artist’s statement:
As a teacher I have become increasingly aware of time and the necessity of intentional daily rhythms. Each new day we are given the decision of how to live our hours. The patterns of living that we create are often uprooted by literal and symbolic storms. Plans do not always come to fruition in the way we first thought. These moments refresh our awareness of how little control we have over our own existence and what we anchor ourselves to when familiar things are wiped away.
