To create the text for this artists’ book, Her Time © 2009, I collected statements beginning with she, her, he and him from the biographical entries in a circa 1950 encyclopedia set and then replaced the pronouns he and him with she and her. The statements were edited for brevity and arranged to form a repeating arc of life and death, all beginning with She or Her. The title comes from the final line of text: She was among the most distinguished figures of her time. and is most appropriate today following the historic nomination of the first female US presidential candidate from a major political party.

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.
