Songs Like Water is an installation made of vintage choral sheet music that has been cut, drawn upon and reassembled to create waves and nets. Having spent hundreds of hours manipulating the pages, the printed lyrics and musical annotations have become abstract, allowing me to respond formally to the color and tone of the paper, to the density and boldness of the marks. My intent is to depict music as a pervasive force that can move even the most passive listener, can alter the perception of self and surroundings.

In the News

Art on Armitage was named as the second of 5 best window galleries in Chicago by New City News in their end of year edition on Dec 22. Who knew I had competition? I certainly have been at this the longest, since 2003.
