Wyo Juncture Series: In 2013 I was one of 8 artists, writers, and musicians at Brush Creek Ranch in southern Wyoming. Brush Creek had 30,000 Acres of land at the base and into the Medicine Bowl Mountains, with forested and hilly terrain. The rich visual environment became the inspiration for producing 15 moquettes for larger installations. This time, I embraced several things: literal textural imagery on the wall planes, a color palette associated with the visual context, and Materials from the site. In 2014, I produced a full scale installation based on one of the Maquettes (Wyo Junctures: Hidden Corral) which was shown at the Kirkland Art Center in Kirkland, WA in a show called “All Nine Legs” with the other artist participants from the Brush Creek Ranch Artist Residency in April of 2013. The full scale installation was 14’x 14’x 10’ and can be seen in the Installation portion of this website. The entire piece was based on the maquette below.
