Yesterday’s Perfume II (20x17x2″) & Fractured Dreams (8x8x2″) have been juried into McMaster Innovation Park’s Art in the Workplace exhibition in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. My “Yesterday’s Perfume” art works explore expectations, wild hopes and shattered dreams. The boxes contain life shards – bits and pieces of intimate ephemera I’ve collected over the years, along with my photos, prints and writings. These offer the scent of an organic communal memory that prevails despite the eternal flux of life.

About the Optimism of Color Blog

Every Tuesday and Friday, I’m posting a photo or piece of art that I’ve created that reflects what I call the Optimism of Color. Through vibrant colors and bold visceral forms, these works shout out my joy at being alive, and my good fortune at being able to continue to make art after a near death experience.

Each of the images I post brings a smile to my face. I hope they bring you similar joy and laughter through the Optimism of Color.
