With its fan structure (giving the impression of solidity when fully open and at the same time existing in the fragments of its separate spokes), glossy deep blue palette, and snowy scene of a central but distorted frame house in the midst of bare branched trees, Mercy Snow House ©1996, is about the inevitability of loss. The fan shape and its possibilities interest me. I looked at examples of advertising fans – popular as a promotional giveaway items before air conditioning was common. In my piece, the word mercy is used instead of the name of a product, business or candidate.

SECOND SIGHT is a 24 month project to revisit, reconnect, and share 30+ years of my own studio work (drawing, works on paper, artists books, installations) and featuring work, ephemera and  projects of other artists that have enriched my personal and working life over this time period.

 

Via weekly posts that move forward by linking some aspect of the previous post to the current one and using tags as a creative way to search the ongoing entries – Second Sight will grow into an alternative archive.

 

I invite you to join me at any and all points during this probably odd but hopefully compelling voyage.
