October 2016: Mindscapes - Exhibition Opening
April 2016: An evolving body of work: Desert Light
Impressions of rhythms, mood, and spirit found in the solitude of the desert. By reducing the desertscapes to their essential features - waves of colorful light - I aimed to create a set of images that move beyond what the eye can see, and communicate a personal experience of my journey through them.
April 2016: Show Opening
A time of reflection and transition.
A time to slow down and contemplate the cycle of life.
A time to adjust, or burst out with energy one last time, even if the expense is futile.
A time to prepare for what is predictable, and final.
A time to say Good-Bye.
Opening Reception: Saturday April 2nd 2016, 4-6 pm
July 2014: New gallery - Impressions of Mono Lake
The Mono Lake Basin in the California high desert is among the most picturesque places on the planet, spiritual, inspiring, full of stark contrasts and teeming with life. Known for its outlandish tufa formations and dramatic cloudscapes, the Mono Lake Basin offers breathtaking vistas throughout the seasons - pogonip in winter, delightful grasses in summer, brilliant colors in spring and fall. But most of all, it offers peace, serenity and inspiration to those who seek it. Plese enjoy a selection of my favorite landscapes from this beautiful place.
March 2014: Deep South, Thin Ice
Recently returned from my journey to the Ross Sea, Antarctica, it will take me quite a while to process and comprehend the many layers of this amazing experience, and the immensity of what I have seen... But, a first glimpse is available in my newest gallery, Deep South, Thin Ice. From Invercargill, New Zealand, all the way to McMurdo Sound and back, we traveled 4675 nautical miles across the Southern Ocean, which lived up to its reputation as the stormiest place on Earth. Antarctica may be an icy desert, but the Ross Sea is teeming with life and indescribable beauty - a symphony in emerald, aquamarine and white, where time stands still. But the Ross Sea is also the most pristine ecosystem on Earth, and its existential balance is about to tip. For the first time in more than two decades, no pack ice blocked the way to McMurdo Sound. In the deep south of the planet, increasingly thin ice and irresponsible fishing practices are about to threaten survival of some of the most resilient species on Earth. Learn more about what we can do to save the Ross Sea here.
