Genre: Visual Artist



An interest with engaging in both the public, private and performative realms have forged an eclectic range of work.  Interest has focused as of late in creating catalytic questions in public spaces yet generated from an idiosyncratic drawing practice.  Among current large-scale projects are for the University of Colorado’s new Art Museum in Boulder, Snow College Library, University of Central Florida Physics, The Hoboken Ferry Terminal and the Metro system, St.Louis.

Architectural interventions in Manhattan include Metronome on Union Square, and Oculus throughout the World Trade Center / Park Place / Chambers Street Subway station.

Other projects include installations created for the Kunsthalle, Basel; Aquario Romano, Rome; The Olympic Arts Festival; The List at MIT; Public Art Fund; Wadsworth Atheneum; The New Museum; The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts; Triennale, New Delhi; Creative Time; Museo D”Arte Contemporanea, Prato; Chicago Cultural Center.

Artist’s Space, Barbara Flynn, Annina Nosei, Damon Brandt and Frederieke Taylor have presented solo exhibitions.

Permanent works reside in many locations including two New York public schools, Tampa International Airport, Kansas City International Airport’s three terminals and large public buildings in Chicago, Portland, Milwaukee, San Francisco and Philadelphia.

Performance works include commissions by The Next Wave Festival of the Brooklyn Academy of Music, David Dorfman Dance, Matthew McGuire of the Creation Company, Merce Cunningham and recently Andante was presented at the Guggenheim Museum.

 I have worked collaboratively with Kristin Jones since 1983 as well on independent projects.
