The Seepage of Proserpine

Ceiling and Wall Installation
Lehman College Art Gallery
Bronx, New York

I was invited by Karin Bravin of BravinLee Programs to create a work for a group exhibition she was curating at the Lehman College of Art Gallery in the Bronx, New York. The ceiling of the space were about thirty feet high. Using a single lift I began to install the work from the cement ceiling. Like may of my works, I draw inspiration from poetry. I wanted to create a work with the flow and sensibilities of a poem. While I always do site visits and sketches ahead of time, the work and the artist (myself) are continually responding to the space, its constraints and possibilities.


Mixed Media Installations are custom made for the space and exhibition theme I am invited to be a part of. While they are site-specific, these works consider the curator’s vision and my own interpretation of that vision. Each work is hand made by the artist for a particular space and individual needs. Purchasing price is determined by the size of the space and the scope of the work. I work with each client to determine their needs and budget. For exhibition inquiries, a site visit, the curator’s theme and specs are necessary to determine the specifics of the installation. For each institution or venue, I want to ensure that my site responsive installation will engage the audience in a multitude of ways.
