I love this work and could sit with any one of them for a day. Would some day love to talk with you--and I'm sure you've done this before--about how these, for you, would differ from installations with the same materials/objects.

love, peggy

It is an economic choice. Though my focus on interior spaces began in the late 80's early 90's when installation as a form was ascendant, the blossoming of the shelter-mags was also heating up. Both of these were influences threw me back into realizing the utility of the painting as a movable site, a can-do apparatus often invested with the need for capacity, weather perceptual or conceptual. I liked the slippage between these categories. Reluctant to engage in a gas-guzzling or evaporating practice, painting held and still holds the capacity for my occupation.
