“BEAUTY IS NOT CAUSED. IT IS.”  

Emily Dickinson

 The experience/witnessing of my art is likened to viewing a photograph of a lover 
in contrast to reveling in the actual presence of the beloved

-a real commUnIcation.

X

So it is with ALL my work: listen to the cadence, the shape, the pause, the movement, and the silence…

My art pursues the beauty of realization rather than perfect beauty.

 X

All of my life I have known an inviolable place of inner freedom containing:

X

Earth; pieces of washed clear blue skies; brilliant unfolding blooms;
wings of flight;
 the color and arcs of rainbows;
the hallelujah chorus of wind, rain and rivers;
and
the white glistened silence of ice.

X

This was my chrysalis:

X

My life was baptized in hospitals, a place where time and space was defined
as waiting, compassion and hope.
 No flag of creed, race, religion, gender, or social rank was raised. 

X

We were all horizontal breathing beds. I lived in a body cast with a shaven head. 
Visitors were allowed once a week for two hours and touching was forbidden
– like an art museum with limited hours. 

X

I was born a broken Ming vase

re-created with expert hands

and

I was set on fire with love.

 X

My art offers the viewer the transcendent moment of an epiphany. 
The moment when one’s heart is suddenly set open and rapt
and when all the senses are heralded and keen.

X

My art is I/ ThoU – the sacred, sensuous dialogue of call + response, an intimate dance unfolds
and the gospel song is:
“I see you- you, an unrepeatable field of gold”.  

X

My art is improvisational-attending to both the sound of the silver horn within the wilderness of my soul
– and in response/dialogue with the external world.

X

Thank you

to my collaborative ensemble of medical creative genius

– from birth up to this naked moment:
