A bit about my project: My long-term preoccupation as an artist centers on the role of beauty in enabling any of us to consider issues from another person’s perspective or experience. My installation at the Personal Structures show in Venice is entitled Moments of Beauty, Reframed, Create a Blueprint for Thriving/If We Can Just Learn to Pivot.  This multidimensional installation consists of three cubes of paintings rendered on silk, highlighting detail shots from three series:  “What will I do with all this freedom?” (2018); “Decades in the Making (2008-2018); and “The Great Migration” (2015). 

Moments of Beauty, Reframed, Create a Blueprint for Thriving/If We Can Just Learn to Pivot exists as a personal embodiment of the political act of reconsideration: viewers must literally and physically shift positions in order to see the whole. To pivot, one must create space for consideration, space for the other, space to contemplate, space to dream.  To pivot, one must shift, move, perhaps turn. To pivot ideologically, one must consider another perspective as equally valid. I strive to invite, through beauty, the generous reconsideration of the expansion of possibilities for all people.
