Gallery 3: Old House

        Galleries Gallery 1 Gallery 2 Gallery 3 Gallery 4 Gallery 5

Old House explores aspects of an

old family house, now sold, in its

setting of trees, water & sky. In the

family for 90 years, the summer

house saw many generations. Of

most interest was the sleeping

porch, seen from inside, outside, &

underneath, with its old hospital

beds & simple structure. Sometimes

I thought of the house & its

immediate surroundings as being

one organism, the exterior walls

porous & translucent. Experiments

with night-time reflections merge

inside & outside in mysterious ways.

The works suggest the

incompleteness of memory & the

transience of time.
