Tree Talk is collaboration between two artists and me for the 2019 Terrain Biennial. Each artist selected a sentient being that might dwell in a yard, garden, or sky. Together, we create a communication between non-human living things in an imaginary landscape that meditates on the power and mystery of the natural world.
You and Your Nativity
You and Your Nativity is an installation created for an 11th century church in Marnay-sur-Seine, France. Inspired by the architecture and by sculptures in church’s crèche, I developed a series of interactions between the personalities of the nativity and my drawings. The three kings, the animals, Joseph and Mary were each coupled with a drawing and then situated throughout the church. For example, Balthasar is walking down a red carpet, Melchior responds to a drawing of naked women, a cow examines an image of blood spilling and Joseph admires his reflection in a pond.
