CPSA Welles­ley, MA

Cairn Trip­tych, 9½ x 29" (24 x 74 cm) DER­WENT / MACPHER­SON’S ART AWARD FOR EX­CEP­TIONAL MERIT Artist State­ment I have been ex­plor­ing dif­fer­ent ways of draw­ing stones for over 10 years, my most rec­og­nized work be­ing ar­rang­ing them in bowls of wa­ter and play­ing with the re­flec­tions, light, color dis­tor­tion, menis­cus and bird’s-eye view com­po­si­tions. This cairn se­ries is partly in­spired by the color field paint­ings by Mark Rothko, and read­ing Josef Al­bers’ In­ter­ac­tion of Color. The stones have be­come a step­ping point for stack­ing color and re­duc­ing the images to a sim­pli­fied essence. This draw­ing is my first trip­tych.
