From the MFA Show

I had my MFA show at the very end of the spring semester, during finals week, giving me as much time as possible to finish the work.  Because of all this extra time, the work was all new, finished in 2011, and fewer students looking for dinner came to the opening reception than usual.

The tall piece, seven feet tall, had to be assembled in the gallery because I don't have enough room in my workspace to put the components together.  Lighting, as usual, takes longer than I think it will and even then,
it's not quite satisfying.  The work in the show is screenprinted and reliefprinted, sewn, and welded steel.
