“[They] can see nothing around them that is not their own image; everything speaks to them of themselves. Their very landscape is alive.” – Karl Marx
Cynosure (n.)
“a person or thing that is at the center of attention or admiration,” 1590s, from French cynosure (16c.), from Latin Cynosura, literally “dog’s tail,” an old name of the constellation (now Ursa Minor) containing what is now the North Star, the focus of navigation, at the tip of its tail; from Greek kynosoura, literally “dog’s tail,” from kyōn (genitive kynos; from PIE root kwon- “dog”) + oura “tail.”

The primary question, how does external authority mirror an internal authority or vice versa?
Second, how does geography influence this reflection?
For one week you will use elements of dérive as a tool for exploring various terrains through writing—urban, biological, geographic, landscape, residential, climate, etc.—in order to gain insights into these questions and ultimately reveal the complex relationships between internal experience and external myth. You will illuminate what lies in the margins seeking a cynosure for all eyes.

The intentional physicality of my paintings is as much a result of my dialogue throughout the process as it is the means with which I invite viewers to experience the work viscerally. Iconography may be the entry point for viewers, but the essence of the elements and ambiguity demand individual interaction with each painting. Layering is both revealing and concealing, creating a balanced tension and suspension which is really what painting is for me. I use the elements to speak for me and I wish to open doors to new dialogue within and between viewers.
