My Dress projects engage people with their
sense of place. They began (and continue) as
painting projects, where I paint 100 small
encaustic paintings of dresses on site, all
inspired by that particular time and place, and
invite others to do so with me, resulting in a
portrait of a place in 100 small details, carefully
observed and whimsically rendered.
You can see many of the dresses by following
the links below. Enjoy. They're a hybrid creative
writing/visual art project, so seeing the image
and reading its name are equally important.
Since 2011, I have moved into sculpture, building dresses on people's bodies using clear
packing tape, removing and installing them in the environment, resulting in an evocative
and ephemeral occupation of the landscape by these very human volumes.
