Wassaic Project Summer Exhibition June 16- Sept. 2

“Mildred” is a new direction for me.  She is not painted on a building; she is emerging from it.  The four flat plywood panels that form the sea monster, are constructed and painted in the style of traditional theatrical scenery.  I wanted to see what would happend if I were to take  set pieces out of the theater and into the world.

Special thanks to Chris Zeig, Valerie Light, Laura Nesson and Josh Kesner for their heroic assistance.
