Spring 2013 Collection: Almanac

On the Vernal Equinox I present the online debut of my Spring 2013 Collection: Almanac -- a lucky thirteen pieces about fate, fortune, omens, and luck.

Almanac is the exploration of humankind's willingness to defer to some larger power, be it natural or supernatural. This deference is traced across cultures and through the centuries via maxims, prescriptions, and nursery rhymes. Here, such beliefs are illustrated with everyday objects, plants, and animals encountered in domestic, rural, and occupational settings.

Pieces are slotted to be shown in Portland in May, when I return from my residency in Wyoming. I am, however, listing them for sale now -- if any tickle your fancy, I can put them aside. Please contact me for shipping information.

***Notice that several pieces come framed. Frames are black-pained wood "shadowbox" style frames, made locally by the same woodworker that makes my panels: the incomparable Matt at artsubstrates.
