Blacky Black Blanket
Precision tied black zip-ties on 10’x5′ black fishing net draped over 8′ steam armature….
The blanket is weighty and casts light shadows against the wall.
Part of a new series of works exploring the impact of implicit bias.

Please go see it in person. The fabric plays a trick on the eye.
Walk into the lobby anytime atÂ 389 Washington Avenue, Jersey CityYou can’t miss it covering the entire wall.
Wonder Women… realized
I can’t believe its done. All I need to do is find a wall big enough to hang it and photograph it.
Wonder Women is a riot of pony beads, buttons, bottle caps, crystals, mirrors, flowers, embroidery, and bling measuring a 10â€™x8â€™.
Over the course of four weekends, Garden Level hosted four Sewing Circles. More than twenty people headed the call. Each influencing the work in their own way.
A nine-year-old girl walked in off the street with her mom and learned to sew her very first button. Even, two men joined the fun and documented their work.
A massive thank you to everyone one who stepped in to sew and offer their helpful suggestions. Shout outs too…
my studio assistant, Victoria Rozario, and local artists, friends and collectors, Sonya Askew, Andrea Morin, Maria Ross, Deirdre Kennedy, Corrine Beth Bentley, Shilpa Gowan, Leslie Sheryll, Beverly McCutcheon, Donna Drew, Diana Tyson, Jasmine Malloy, Carolyn Logan, Colleen Mullen, William Jiggets, Khaled Elbanna,Â Cecilia Rozario andÂ anyone else i inadvertently left off.
Many hands makes light work.
The tapestry will show at Visual Arts Center in Summit NJ this Fall. I hope everyone who helped make this piece come together will make it to the opening. Details to come.
