Snow Collage IV – Ash, Snow, Bulrush, Wind

Composed from ash and wind on snow (a charcoalotype?), an ephemeral outdoor installation, an annual tradition. This one is about 15' diameter. (Previous ones, 30', here, and here, and some snow graffiti here.) 8 hours + to make; 8 minutes to disappear (it rained shortly after completion). Gone like the year. Indoor version in the works:  ash or graphite on sand, larger in scale and longer lived. (Prints available).

Flowasteppa acrylic on canvas, 72” x 52” x 1.5” The above painting (detail shot) came from two strands of work: 1) the outdoor monochromatic drift experiments, where I sifted wind-blown ash over arranged and analog-glitched found objects on snow; and 2) the ‘--Steppa’ works, high-color calligraphic and shift-chunked spraypaint pieces. (It’s also is a bit of a reaction against my own recent shiny-shiny.) With Flowasteppa (and others in the series) I laid raw canvas down on the ground on a -15° day, and, working with the wind and falling color, ghosted and pixelated the natural...

Drawalkings & (s)no henge

Drawalkings & (s)no henge

Some para-studio work (or oxymoronically, holiday work.) A series of spontaneous earth/weatherworks, made for the sake of... making & moving. Done by walking, lifting, shuffling, skating, throwing, sliding, kicking, and snowangel-ing, while using ice, shadows, snow, sticks, skates, wind, fog and sun. Most are many hundreds of feet in size. Don’t know if anyone saw them. (Don’t care.) Some were documented, some weren’t. Don’t know how long any of them lasted, but one thing’s for sure: they’re all gone now.
