perimeter gallery show in Belfast

I am posting some pictures of "Epilogues," a two person show at perimeter gallery which is at Chase's Daily restaurant in Belfast, Maine. It is a great open space with soaring ceilings and a long wall which accommodates large work very nicely. My work is paired with the intimate, hand carved pieces by Jessica Straus, an artist from Boston, who is a longtime friend. I love the way they hung the show, alternating the large with the small. Yes, that sculpture in the foreground is an obelisk. All my pieces are constructed with strips of book covers which have been stitched back together with linen thread to create solid forms or quilt like pieces. Jessica's pieces combine parts of old Yellow Pages books with hand carved wood forms. Note the nice shadows cast by Jessica's pieces.
