Research Summary

Primary creative research: paintings on panel, most adapted from my travel sketchbooks. (Their pages can be understood as works-in-progress directing the more formal studio efforts. Most of the 24 paintings in my current Phillips Gallery solo show, "Art History", connect to the visual notes in one or another of my sketchbooks of the past decade.) Having resolved and published my book on Burgundy, "Seeing and Believing", I am making plans for a fourth travel-based volume.

Ongoing collaboration

Now that the edition of "Stranger and Stranger" has been resolved by Red Butte Press, Katharine Coles and I will begin to discuss with one another ideas for new collaborative efforts. This conversation will begin in public, with a reading and artists' talk, February 27, 2019 at Phillips Gallery.
