Spring Trip to Cuba and to Japan (2016)

Recent trips were taken to view art and culture, see old friends and meet new ones, to Cuba (Havana, Vinales, and Playa Giron) and Japan (Kyoto, Tokyo, Naoshima) in the Spring of 2016.

In keeping with my past activities, I mailed collaged postcards home from Japan. 

Images taken on both these trips will most assuredly show up in future work. I am about to begin a new series to complement and expand on Postcards of Japan which I completed in 2013. Digital images are printed on Japanese washi, and then collage materials are applied onto these images, or appear in windows cut into the images.

Sentinels in Holyoke

When: Fall 2014 – Ongoing

Where: Northampton Street (Rte 5) & Lincoln Street,
Holyoke, MA


I have placed my sculptures Sentinels on a city lot at the corner of Northampton Street (Rte 5) and Lincoln Street where they will remain for at least two years. 

This was initiated by me and realized with cooperation from the Office of Economic Development, the DPW, Parks and Rec and lastly unanimous support from the local Cultural Council. 

Thanks to all who helped make this possible.
