Artropolis and other stuff

This is a new piece. "Greenland - ice and water"
It's 18" x 24" and is encaustic and digital on panel. ©2008

I spent the weekend in Chicago at Artropolis.
I saw a lot of work I liked and a lot that seemed dull. Was
grabbed by work at Sundaram Tagore, especially Sohan Qadri's beautiful
dyed paper pieces.

I was surprised by how little encaustic there was at either Art Chicago
or the Next show. I did enjoy Martin Kline's large scale encaustic at
Jason McCoy.

I also visited Woman Made Gallery. I am jurying a show there with Lynda
Cole. Here's the call for entry for One Planet, One Experiment. I will be
having a solo show there this fall as well.

media on panel, 24" x 24" ©2008

"bleeding fjord", encaustic, digital imaging and mixed
media on panel, 18" x 24" ©2008

Both of these pieces started with satellite images of coastal
Greenland where glacial melt has been accelerating at a frightful
rate over the last few years. "Melt zone" incorporates false color
imaging of areas melting faster and other data.
