Someone Else's Homestead

Someone Else's Homestead

Someone Else's Homestead, the series I began during my South Carolina residency this summer, is finito and photographed!  I am not exactly sure of the order or orientation the paintings will be arranged in, above is a test shot. What a great sense of closure and now the door in open to fully jump in and begin new work.  Here are some general words that describe my experience at Rensing.  Next on the agenda is finding a venue to show the series…hmmmm….

To immerse yourself into another person's environment is to become consumed by another person's thoughts, beliefs, their life.  Those feelings take time to dissipate after you have left the space in order to  resume your own life again.  The transition period takes awhile to stumble through, it takes time to absorb the experience and then to leave it behind.  But you quickly learn that there is no way to fully resume your previous existence.  There is no picking up where you left off because the experience changed you, and maybe in just the most subtle of ways or maybe you see the world entirely different.
