SOLID FLUIDITY is a title that is both descriptive and suggestive of the two main bodies of work in the exhibition: woods and water. This title underscores the solidity in the way I paint fluid water and the fluidity in the way I paint solid trees and rocks. I was essentially trying to make paintings of flowing, clear fluid waters that seemed solid while simultaneously trying to make solid trees and rocks that looked fluideven though they aren’t & don’t normally do so….while the light and reflections changed throughout the course of the day AND the water streamed rapidly down the river. I love challenges for sure! This was my seventh solo show with Valley House Gallery since they started representing me in 1994. They produced a 28 page catalog with an interview by the gallery director, Cheryl Vogel. Richard Shift’s essay “Catching Up with the Instant” is also reproduced here. A small (3MB) pdf of the catalog can be download  below:
