I spent part of my winter holiday in Denver, visiting some family and old friends. I also worked out a possible deal with the Denver Art Museum. It seems the museum might be buying a nice, broad selection of my photographs.
Wish me luck.
Until then, samples from an earlier body of work – Where Earth Meets Sky – might be included in a group show at the museum this summer/fall. It’s a show about dirt. The pictures above are a few being considered. In order, the pictures are of sand flowing through water, in a small creek in Western New York (the Kanakadea Creek, which translate from the Native language – part of the Iroquois nation – as “where earth meets sky”); a quilt left on a beach in Boston, slowly dissolving under high tide; and a bicycle left for not in a creek bed in Western New York.
Should it work out for me, this show will include a number of other notable artists – Ana Mendieta, Dieter Appelt, David Maisel, and Vik Muniz were all mentioned in meeting with the curators.
Wish me luck on this one too.
