I’ve been doing art since an early age and this is the first time that I have a big, real studio — a space where I can leave things out to dry without having to clean up. The left-hand side of the photo is a close-up of my working bench, with a few pieces that will be on show soon. The right-hand photo uses a landscape view from outside my studio. The studio is located at Casa del Arte in the Hudson Valley. It’s a unique building, reminiscent of a round-arched Mediterranean castle. It’s an amazing environment, and an ideal space for creating.

In the darkroom, I do wet chemical processing of medium-format film and gelatin silver prints up to 16’x20’. Film is developed in cylindrical tanks, and prints are made in a series of chemical bath trays. Sometimes I will later collage other papers, or 3-D objects, onto the faces of the prints. Other times I will make many copies of the same print, cut them up and then collage them into kaleidoscopic abstract patterns.
Poussin and the Dance is a valiant attempt to break into Poussin’s staunchly academic oeuvre and provide a relatable point of entry, highlighting the exciting elements of revelry and movement despite impenetrable and unemotional rendering.

Growth and care are central themes…
