Gallery and Studio View
I found a studio on Grand Street in Williamsburg, and started to work on the American part of the Painted Place series.
A selection of Painted Place was shown at the
Garces y Velasquez Gallery in Bogota, Colombia in September of 1997.
This year, Liz Thompson introduced me to the owners of the Wheatleigh hotel in Lenox, MA. They were in the process of selecting the architects for a major renovation of the hotel, and had been looking for an artist to make work for this new space.
We agreed on an open ended commission structure that would allow me to do exploratory work for the hotel (which turned into a 4 year project).
The Simons in turn introduced me to Ute Stebich, a Gallery owner in Lenox, who started showing my work the following year.
