Solo: From Dawn to Dusk

Updated November 18, 2019

My 35th career solo, From Dawn to Dusk, took place at ODETTA Gallery in New York City for five weeks in October and November. Curated by Ellen Hackl Fagan, the exhibition featured 15 paintings installed in an arrangement that suggested the mutable light during a period from sunup to sundown. This is the first time that a chromatic narrative was ascribed to my Silk Road series, but I enjoyed the association because color and light are the inspiration for these small formal color fields.

The theatrical space prompts me to think of these as 15 color field paintings in one act

The exhibition catalog, which contains a curator's essay 
and my own statement about the work, features images

available for purchase.
