Obsess Over Everything

On April 24, after 5 months nonstop of papercutting, I opened my biggest show yet called Vascular Caverns at 707 Gallery in Downtown Pittsburgh.  The idea was one that I always had with me, so somehow I had to plan out covering a whole entire gallery in entirely handcut paper.  I knew I wanted it to be meditative, so I created a cavernous space, and included a smaller, secluded cavern within the gallery that viewers could step inside.  It was a huge success and it’s on view for some time.  If you are in the Pittsburgh area, come see it!  At the end of the exhibit’s time, I will be burning the entire installation during a performance piece- more info to come!

_DSC0379So this month I began my month long artist residency in Wyoming at the Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts.  I started out by flying into Denver and taking some time to drive around and visit Laramie.  I came with my lovely, city-dwelling parents.  Surprisingly, we all got into the Western vibe and soaked up as much as we could in two days time.  Of course, the best part was the driving.  I had been prepping a playlist special for about a month now and let me tell you, it was perfect.  I don’t think we could have survived without it.  Here are a few photos from our travels.
