I was offered a merit-based grant and financial aid package to help make it possible for me to attend a residency at the Vermont Studio Center. I will be in residence for four weeks in the session beginning 8/3/2014 through 8/29/2014.
I intend to use my time at the Vermont Studio Center to begin work on an entirely new body of paintings and drawings that will form the nucleus of my solo exhibition to be held at the Bowery Gallery in New York City in December and January this winter. I plan to make use of the time, space, and quiet to concentrate on developing work centered around the figure and groups of figures in environments. It would mark the return to a method of production that I have not engaged in for several years, but that I feel compelled to investigate anew.
