Recent work consists of intimate, accessibly abstract, painted assemblages on canvas and in boxes referencing Russian Constructivism, propaganda posters and the overwhelmingly frightening daily news I find myself unable to escape. Using vivid colors of red and blue taken from the Russian flag, relationships are built between geometric shapes, letter forms and numbers. Russian words are hand lettered, translating to recurring phrases I read and think about. The typography speaks to my past life as a graphic designer and love of letter forms.

Walk down the drive past the house, Art Studio is on the second floor of the carriage house. Be transported back in time to a century-old studio. On the ground floor this year, Steve Harris joins the tour sharing 4 short films and his cadre of actors.

Art Studio Now is in it's 14th year; art enrichment for children 5 years and up. Sign up for Summer Camp!

"A new series of narrative and representational paintings touch on lingering topics. Combining acrylic paintings sometimes with three dimensional objects compulsively collected over decades within the context of suburban landscapes. Controlling nature in an unnatural environment continues to intrigue and inspire me as well as all the students I teach at Art Studio continue to inform my art."
