Painting is my religion; my church, the studio. Puppetry is my ritual; my prayers, the stories therein.
This work is a combination of paintings and puppetry: INGS.
All acrylic on foam core, all semi-dimensional, some kinetic, some static; all experimental!
An interest in puppetry draws from a childhood fascination with both Biblical and other culture myths told through puppets and their illusion of a subjectively formed, artificial reality. This began with a solo show at Eye Lounge (DESERT RELIGION) and continued at venues such as the Great Arizona Puppet Theater and Hot Box gallery: ECSTATIC TRUTH, my current project cycle, has continued into a filmed performance (Capsule Myths), which is a brief sampling of my most recent pieces.
