Three Barn Owls: This story is about circuitous connections, 2013
acrylic and graphite on canvas
30" x 40"   SOLD


(A group of owls is commonly called a parliament, wisdom or study.  Barn owls are non-territorial and live in overlapping home ranges.  
They are commonly photographed as a group perched in the rafters of a barn. Conceptually I am interested in the idea
of the wisdom of a group and the circuitous way in which things and beings are connected).


Remember the night we sat in the field and watched owls?, 2013
acrylic and graphite on panel
24" x 48"   SOLD


(One night, on our way home after a party with friends, my children(6 and 8) and I spotted barn owls in a field.  
We jumped out of the car, climbed through barbed wire fencing and crept through the night into one of the most beautiful
fields on the island where we live.  We sat in silence under a star filled sky and watched two barn owls, one of which flew right over us).

I Listen Fiercely For You Too, 2013
acrylic and graphite on panel
36" x 24"  SOLD


(A barn owl's hearing is, according to some sources, 1000 times stronger than that of a human's.  Conceptually, I am interested
in the idea of listening with fierce intensity - in the natural world to hunt, eat, survive, prosper and as a citizen of our contemporary
world to learn, grow, survive, prosper.  And I wonder with the rarity of silence in pop culture are we devolving our ability to listen acutely?)

In A Dream Some Questions You Might Ask:

Is the soul solid, like iron?
Or is it tender and breakable like
the wings of a moth in the beak of the owl?
Who has it, and who doesnt?
I keep looking around me

Virgil: Georgics (working the earth)
Book IV Apiculture, circa 29 BCE, 2013

acrylic and graphite on panel
36" x 24"  SOLD

(In the field of this painting I have included excerpts from one of ancient Rome's greatest epic poets.  Virgil wrote the didactic hexameter poem
called the Georgics, on farming and working the earth, in (perhaps 3729 BC).  The fourth book, from which I have quoted, is an alluring,
romantically illustrative yet educational perspective on what is commonly known today as biodiverse farming and tending bees.)



Blackboard Be (quote from Virgil), 2013
acrylic and graphite on panel
36" x 24"
$3,800

(This painting is about (layers of) learning and teaching and about different perspectives i.e. the writing of the Virgil quote is upside down.  It was partially inspired by a front page photo in the NYTimes of a girl reading in front of a large blackboard. She is a student at Mir Ali Ahmad Girls School in Parwan Province, Afghanistan.  The caption states that "Most girls drop out between sixth and ninth grades." July 2013).



To Be, 2013
acrylic and graphite on panel
36" x 24" SOLD

(The conceptual question is "what is it To Be in the world?  to exist in relation to the environment? the natural world? or to each other?
 Less conceptual, I find it hard not to linger on the sound of "two bee(s)," or momentarily stumble on the spelling of the title
in a habituated attempt to rearrange it in a familiar way.)
