"Once there was a row of houses on the right side as you drive down the hill." So begins the text in my artists' book In Your Community copyright 1997. This text is a description of a row of small neat houses and an empty lot/green space that I drove past everyday and the sequence of their destruction and replacement with a Walmart. I used the pages of a paperback workbook for adult community education cut into thirds as the book's structure. In Your Community was the title of a chapter in this workbook. Other chapter titles: In Your Family and In Your State also became artists' books. The Walmart has come and gone, leaving a building behind that struggles to find a useful purpose in our community.

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.
