About the DIA Project
Knotted was constructed through twisting strips of newspaper and connecting them into long, thick ropes, tied together into an intestine-like knot. I use recycled materials in my work, newspapers, old video tape, found objects, not only for environmental concerns and ease of availability but to bring additional layers of meaning into the work. The printed news, radio and television (video and audio tape) bring world events into my consciousness, the good and the bad. This media can seem at times to be my connection to these far away events.
Using actual news stories as my material from which I create the work allows me to create something enticing out of the things which trouble me.
I hope to create a parallel, to draw in the viewer by the textures, shapes, shadows and movement, in the same way as I am drawn to the news.
33 IDEAS!, an exhibit of art, writing and ideas
Denver International Airport
This exhibit showcases visual and literary artists associated with Colorado Art Ranch as presenters, artists in residence, or Nomads at one or more Artposia. The artists were selected because they use their passion, skills, knowledge, and talent to ask questions and react to the world around them. The work, in turn, inspires us to ask questions and view the world from different perspectives.
33 IDEAS! is on display at the Ansbacher Hall: The Art of Colorado, on the walkway between the terminal and A Gates before the security screening. The hall is accessible for everyone’s enjoyment.
