Being in the Woods unites Stella Untalan‘s ink drawings and Brian David Dennis‘ large cardboard construction titled, [bar], in a meta-magical art installation vibrating with the rhythms of the universe and nature. Minimalist drawings using walnut ink and a nib are serenely precise and flow with life energy. The repetition and hand/mind control pulses across the sheen of the paper like heart beats, the measure of time is palpable and flowing.
Yesterday went to see the Agnes Martin show before it closed. It was sublime. Only took a couple pics because I was in a be here now state of mind. The alcoves of the Rotunda were like little chapels to one or two pieces. The 72 inch square pieces were solitary while the 60 inch squares were paired. The pairings were very thoughtful.
The written image. presents a thought provoking array of works which, in a variety of ways, visually examine the symbolic and conceptual complexity of words and language. The exhibition has been skillfully curated by Susanna Gold, and the presentation in her bright Bryn Mawr home, which spans a series of rooms, is refreshingly pleasant.
It's a wonderful thing having your work documented by a professional. The managing of light so that it is even and soft showing your work as it should be seen.
I know that my work has very subtle marks and value changes that are difficult to see in photographs. That's why it is so important to have a professional photograph my work. It's also important for that photographer to capture the spirit of the work and manage what the camera sees.
Now that this drawing is photographed I can work on the hardware to install it at the collectors home. Photographing that will be next.
In this exhibition Marguerita Hagan's single-cell beings of Le Mer dance with the depth measuring of Stella Untalan's Soundings drawings. In the depths Stella measures these creatures are lively and magical contributing to the circle of life on our planet. The exhibition can be seen by appointment.

I've gathered all my images for drawing-a-day in a coffee table book/catalog. Finally it's printed. All 366 drawings are in full color, printed from the original iPhone drawing files. Art journal entries are included along side each drawing. I want to thank the many folks whose interest in the project encouraged me to make this book a reality.
