12 x 12 x 12 December 2014


The twelfth and last 12 x 12 x 12 piece I've created this year is a collage made from leftover scraps of fabric from previous mixed media artwork created in 2014. There's a hint of how I transitioned from using mainly gray/black/white to color over the year. I will post all twelve pieces in this series as a group shortly, for easy viewing.

The 12 x 12 x 12 monthly series is my monthly time to play with materials or an idea. The December piece completes my eighth year working on this series. Each piece is mixed media on 12" x 12" x 1" board. You can read past posts about this series here on my blog, or see all of the completed work on my website.

I was unsure whether I wanted to continue this series into 2015, but I've not only decided to do so, I also ordered the twelve boards for use next year, so I'll be ready at the beginning of January 2015. It's been too valuable an activity to stop now, plus creating one piece a month takes much less time than when I created one small piece a week for seven years.

Interview: GRAVITATING TOWARDS GRIDS



GRAVITATING TOWARDS GRIDS, an interview about me and my time as an Artist-in-Residence at the Women's Studies Research Center at Brandeis University last Spring, is in the November 2014 issue of 614, the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute's eZine. The theme is "Fall into Jewish Art".

I enjoyed answering the thought provoking questions. This is my most favorite quote:

Jeanne Williamson doesn’t see fences as a way to keep people in or out, but as a form of protection and an inspiration for art.

12 x 12 x 12 November 2014


12 x 12 x 12 November 2014, the eleventh piece in my 2014 12 x 12 x 12 series, is a combination of monoprinted garden fencing on fabric, a translucent photo of bunched up orange construction fencing, and some threads embedded in matt medium and cut into the shape of one of the construction fence patterns in my collection.

I'll be making another piece in December, and which will complete eight years of working in this series. I'm undecided if I'll continue in 2015, but I'm leaning toward doing so.

The 12 x 12 x 12 monthly series is my monthly time to play with materials or an idea. Each piece is mixed media on 12" x 12" x 1" board. You can read past posts about this series here on my blog, or see all of the completed work on my website.

New Work: 12 x 12 x 12 October 2014


12 x 12 x 12 October 2014 was created with pieces of painted fabric leftover from my Artist-in-Residence and exhibit at Brandeis University last spring. Before I started at Brandeis, I monoprinted and painted yards and yards of fabric with a lot of color, to experiment with different fabric paints so I could see how they sit on and soak through the white cotton fabric I so enjoy working with.

The 12 x 12 x 12 monthly series is my monthly time to play with materials or an idea. I'm nearing the end of my eighth year working on this series. Each piece is mixed media on 12" x 12" x 1" board. You can read past posts about this series here on my blog, or see all of the completed work on my website.
