We like them like that . . . for now at the Phipps Arts Center in Hudson WI October November 2018
7 works created for the show. We shared the gallery with another artist from Minneapolis. We never thought we’d show works alongside a Soho style portrait of Audrey Hepburn
MakeShift Festival, Tenney Park, Madison, WI, August 2018
An art and food event in which we surmounted the food booths with 2 windspinners, our first outdoor pieces. Hungry or noshing people as viewers.
No Monument to Us vs Them, February & March 2018
Museum of Wisconsin Art 2018 Biennial, West Bend. We were lucky to be included. The jurors thought our piece was 11” high, and the installer kept asking what sort of pedestal we needed. We kept wondering what sort puts an 11’ sculpture on a pedestal these days.
Meaningless and Sure, February & March 2017
The 3rd floor gallery at the Madison central library is a big light-filled space. The proportions seem vaguely church-like so one of the pieces we made for the show looks very, very vaguely like an altarpiece
Municipal, December 10 2016
The big Art Deco municipal building in Madison is getting rehabbed. Empty and just before construction began seemed a great time for a one day pop-up art event. We made a couple of pieces to show along with several dozen other artists.
Hair-trigger eternities, Summer 2016
The 4 pieces for this show started with handmade paper forms that needed a context. We spent months going through endless permutations. When we'd get something we liked, the urgency and frustration of composing fell away. We'd stare at it and wondered what took us so long. Somehow, Henry Miller's words capture that sensation.
707 East Johnson St, Madison July & August 2016
Stuck with 2 apartments for a month, a local couple emptied their old apartment, moved into the new one, filled the old one with art and catered a series of weekly gourmet dinners for 24.
Happy as I can be
Little Monroe Gallery, May & June 2016
This is a little glass and steel display box out front of a frame shop here in Madison. The curator asked us to put something in it. We were flattered to be asked, but stymied. We started swapping ideas and thought, hey, what if we use the gallery as an armature. That seemed a good challenge, so we wrapped it.
