 Instructor Description:
 

My artwork draws heavily on the past in referencing motifs of other cultures and times, building upon my professional career in archaeology.  Cross cultural referencing and appropriation is a well worn path among artists, otherwise “art history” would not hold an appropriately ubiquitous place in every art school curriculum.  I deal mostly with prehistory, only occasionally reaching into the ethnographic period for inspiration.  In looking at my body of art work, critically astute viewers will find a visually subtle second level of cross-cultural borrowing underlying the readily apparent forms and motifs.  That second level originates in purposeful digression from the chronological, sequential development of materials and technology.  I often make tools required to produce my objects.  Using tool forms from the past brings a differing ethic and aesthetic.  Occasionally the tools and their embellishment simply become the product.  They are good and sufficient unto themselves.
