My work has always been narrative and figurative usually involving landscape elements. This recent series tells the tale of a Young Marie Antoinette in modern times based on myth more than fact. Sometimes included in these narratives are her maids or ladies in waiting and occasionally the stories are about them alone. Miniscule strokes of paint akin to embroidery stitches in the earlier work create the images on paper. The surfaces are often eccentrically shaped. My work with this mythic character has led to three-dimensional work incorporating embroidery which was included in my installation at Gallery Joe titled "Le Vraie Histoire de Jeune Marie." More recently I created two large cut and painted paper dioramas that incorporated video and sound which were included in my recent show at Gallery Joe 'Further Tales of Young Marie Antoinette'. Videos of these dioramas installed in the gallery can be seen on Youtube by typing my name.
More recently I have begun a series of watercolors called 'Conceits' which are monochromatic. I have also been working on a new diorama based on Fragonard's 'The Pursuit of Love' series. This diorama has fully three dimensional elements as well as video, sound, and movement. Some of the elements are as tall as three feet and the piece is about six feet long.
