I will eventually transfer the blog to this site and organize it
as time permits. Right now, the blogspot format makes it easier
for old cellulose lips to talk.
The thematic and artistic Cornerstone of my work is:
Richard Rosenblum & his seminal book, Art of the Natural World: Resonances of Wild nature in Chinese Sculptural Art
(MFA Publications, Boston, 2001)
I discovered This beautifully produced book by the late, preeminent collector of Gong Shi, after I had embarked on my journey as a carver/sculptor. I was looking for sources and historical parallels and I found Gong Shi. If I had to categorize myself, I'd say that it has a local vernacular- Pacific Northwest neo gong shi.
