The White Columns Curated Artist Registry
is an online platform for emerging and under-recognized artists to share images and information about their respective practices. The Registry seeks to create a context for artists who have yet to benefit from wider critical, curatorial or commercial support. To be eligible, artists cannot be affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City.

STATEMENT OF WORK
For the past 40 years, I have worked with the passage of time, movement, making, memory, and loss. Recent work examines time and loss—never static, ready to be activated in the moment. Three years ago, in memoriam, I made an accounting of people I was close to who had died during the 60+ years I had lived. For The Art of Losing Isn’t Hard to Master, I made 239 candles, dipping once for each year of the person’s life, and suspended them to subtly move, as they do through my mind.
In 2019, my son drowned, and “mastering loss” became a more profound discipline. He had tattooed one of my woodcuts on his arm—my current series memorializes our connection.
I sketch, scavenge, saw, scratch, scrape, sew, stitch, sand, capture, cut, carve, cast, collage, brayer, paint, print, dip, dye, grommet, weave, glue, rub, reduce, tape, transfer, trim, pour, pound, roll, press, glaze, fire, burn. I do these things over and over til they come out "right."
