Mr Pumpkinhead ©2001 arrives with a blue, grey, black and white palette this week of Halloween. With their leaves down, the moon, and soon, Orion, will be easily visible between the branches of the front maples.

The faces and upright postures of these two rabbits were inspired by the illustrations in a story in a 1949 reading book, Come Along, showing two human children dressing as twin rabbits to attend a costume party. In my drawing, Come Along: young suburban rabbits at dusk © 2003, I was interested in placing these ambiguous characters in a luridly lit evening landscape, against a backdrop of overly large McMansion type American subdivision houses. Drawing the shadow of the plant material along the driveway was an especially engaging task- offering challenge to both my bossy analytic brain and my mute brain that responds to emptiness.

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.
