Someplace Else
Opening Reception: October 13, 2017 6:00 - 8:00 pm Artist Talk: October 14, 2017 4:00 - 5:00 pm Show Dates: October 13th - November 11th Artist Statement: Every time I move somewhere new -- every four years or so -- I spend time feeling disconnected. Why did I go so far away? Where do I really belong? Can I reinvent myself in this new place? I paint my way toward the answers. This is especially true with my egg tempera paintings. Egg tempera doesn’t glide around the way oil does. It doesn’t abide being moved from here to there, or wiped off the canvas to try another direction. Egg tempera hits the panel and stays put. There is a solidity, a rooted-ness to it. In order to build an egg tempera landscape, I sit for hours laying down line after line, layer upon layer. If I work long enough, the unfamiliar language and customs around me fall away. And I’m someplace else. Someplace I’ve made, someplace that draws on the memory of all the places I have traveled and lived and made my home. Sometimes, it’s a glimpse of sky in a faraway place. Other times, it’s a field that I saw a thousand times as a child. This has been a hard couple of years to be away from home. Lots of things have changed and are changing still. I hope that these reflections of my visual experience will bring you to a time you remember, somewhere familiar or, if needed, just someplace else. The fields that I saw as a child are the same fields that Andrew Wyeth wandered and painted so hauntingly in his tempera works. In light of his recent retrospective at the Brandywine River Museum, minutes from my childhood home, I’m thinking about my fellow Pennsylvanian. The steely grays and cold browns belie a sincere empathy for his subjects and a deep connection to the place where he lived. I move around far more than Wyeth, and I paint a wider variety of landscapes. But his temperas depict my first home. And I return to them over and over, visiting like a dear friend.
