Pennies, Band Aids and Safety Pins: The Objects We Keep Hidden
This installation is about examining the personal objects people keep in their dresser drawers, either intentionally or absentmindedly, that reveal things about themselves and their relationships. The installation will consist of dressers presented like historical artifacts or museum displays. Each drawer will be dedicated and archived to the individual donor.
This blog will mainly consist of drawings of items that will be part of the installation. It will be interspersed with photos of the dressers and a general progression of the project.
The opening of the show will be July 7, 2012 in Franklin, New York.
I have been an artist for over 25 years and have lived in many places along the East coast of the United States. I went to the University of Florida and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and drawing. Currently, during the month of April, I have a show of paintings, drawings and a short story in an exhibit titled, Hazel Was a Bear at the Bright Hill Literary Center.
