2011: Polk Museum

PolkView

I was invited to have a solo show at the Polk Museum in Lakeland, FL and they offered to make a small catalog for the show titled “En Plein” Sight . It was for this catalog that the essay “Catching Up with the Instant”, by Richard Shiff, was created and first published. Since my work is site-specific, I always like to try to able able to make at least one painting of the region I am exhibiting in. I mentioned this to the curator and he he made special arrangements for me to be able to paint at the Nature Conservancy’s Disney Wilderness Preserve in Kissimmee, FL (central Florida) which turns out too be close to the museum.
