My time in the studio has been very limited because of family demands which have required an all-consuming left-brain focus. Detailed budgets and financial projections, complicated legal matters, scheduling delays and dealing with the attendant emotional reactivity that can accompany these situations has consumed my time for the past few months. On one hand, my creativity has been at a dead-stop standstill. But interestingly, I found myself thinking about my work often, and through creating order out of confusion and finding patterns in data, I was able to apply that same approach in the studio. These new pieces represent my mindset of these past few months. I have arranged blocks of color and texture, in much the same way that I organized the finances and legal machinations. Block by block, step by step. Coalescing similarities and isolating disparities, I've created a visual record of my efforts.
