Things That Scare Me


Things That Scare Me

Invitational Exhibition June 12-July 27, 2014

The Archer's Dilemma (Angle of Repose) pictured above will get its first showing in this multimedia exhibit that examines the concept of fear. It's a large piece -- 60 x 68 inches -- painted when I was really ill in 2012 and working with doctors to find out what was wrong. I was soon diagnosed with uterine cancer, treated, and thankfully made a full recovery. This painting is about trusting someone to hit the mark and heal you, and how to depict the fine line between that trust and fear in an abstract way.

I hope you have a chance to see this piece June 12 through July 27 at Howard County Community College's Rouse Company Foundation Gallery, a unique and beautiful space. The reception is Tuesday, June 24 from 5:30 to 7:30pm. It's free and part of the Columbia Festival of the Arts.
