Ways Of Seeing

                                       What you saw depended on where you were when.
                                                  -John Berger "Ways of Seeing" 1973

With time comes  mystery, multiple meanings and perhaps a sense of longing...My large scale drawing "The Kitchen is No Longer Reassuring" (1983, pencil on paper, 38" x 76") completed after my mother's death, explores loss and makes the point that ALL art is essentially about memory, a pointed  tug at what inhabits the liminal spaces of our now dreamt pasts. Spoons are zygotes, cracks swallow people, and chairs supply a support of sorts...and doors go somewhere? Perhaps this work offers a key to those dreams, a faintly recognized fragment that bridges a gap between us and ghosts.

The fine Game of Life label invited me to come up with 25 or so minutes of music for free download. Noise produced by eurorack modules, Buchla 200e, my Serge modular, and voice samples interbreed producing vaporous clouds, jarring dystopian jabs, and cut-up samples that are meant to be evocative of the 21th century's layered onslaught.
