While working on the test drawing detail (for a larger project that became a large drawing) that I made into the pages of this artists’ book, All Seeing da Vinci Cells ©2005, I remember thinking about impermanence and about how this, the transitory nature of everything, could be oddly comforting. If nothing stays the same, everyday is different, everyday is new. Acknowledging that people, animals, plants, weather, rocks- everything- none of it is static and all of it is in the midst of some kind of process, helps me feel relief from an anxious and constricted, wrongheaded desire to control things until they are just the way I want them and then struggling to keeping them that way.

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.
