Constellation (no. 1-7), 2010, Lumber Room, Portland, OR

oil, colored pencil, graphite pencil on walls and window glass, dimensions vary. Collection of Sarah Miller Meigs.

I was invited to be the inaugural artist-in-residence at the Lumber Room and commissioned to make a permanent installation. Constellation is comprised of seven drawings and paintings made directly on the walls and one window. The works extend throughout the various spaces of the Lumber Room – a two-story curving stairwell, the main gallery, the smaller gallery, a courtyard, and a bedroom.

Untitled (The Fireplace Room), 2008, Meridian Gallery, San Francisco, CA

gouache, colored pencil, graphite pencil on walls, dimensions vary

A temporary installation comprised of seven intimately scaled wall drawings and paintings, Untitled transformed “the fireplace room”, a small, idiosyncratic space under a staircase in the gallery. The works were situated variously - in a curved niche, adjacent to the fireplace, below the ceiling, in a corner.

Gift, 2006, The Shaker Museum and Library, Mount Lebanon Shaker Village, New Lebanon, NY

gouache on walls and oil on glass window, dimensions vary. Collection of the Shaker Museum and Library.

Gift is a room-sized painting installation, located on the top floor of the historic 1829 Brethren's Workshop, one of the oldest Shaker structures in existence. A long-term installation comprised of eight small paintings made directly on the walls and one window, Gift was inspired by an affinity with Shaker gift drawings, architecture, aesthetics, and the luminous quiet of the site. A catalog accompanies the installation.
