I'm pleased to announce I have created the album cover and labeling for Leapling 's first EP release "Losing Face," which came out on January 15th, 2013 (from Father/Daughter Records). Working with Leapling has been a great experience from start to finish, and I finally got to meet the band in person at their EP release concert and party at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge in Brooklyn, NY (which also happens to be a music space they run!). Please take a moment to check out their beautiful music-

I'm getting ready to install my show at Castleton State College this weekend,
so I thought I'd share some of the ideas I had when I created the work. The show runs through November 20th at the Christine Price Gallery.

"This selection of work from 2011/2012 focuses on my exploration of creating harmony amongst elements of the natural world. Bringing together seemingly different species to create a single entity, I strive to show how something beautiful can perhaps blossom from what may be at first glance an unlikely pairing of creatures. In this melding of plant an animal, I discover flowers cascading from the darkest corners of nature, sea creatures reaching out of the ocean to exist in a world of light, and dying roots tangling with new blooms to capture one last breath.
I have a special interest in working with found materials, and have incorporated antique collage pieces in these works. I like to think of the use of these materials as bringing new life to long forgotten stories-much like I see the images of plants in my drawings bringing new life to perhaps a long lost creature timidly emerging from the depths of the sea."

I don't know how often one of my drawings clearly conveys what I was feeling when it was being
created, but I feel like this particular drawing expresses it perfectly. It was made a few hours after getting some hard news, news about a loss, and unable to focus on anything, I sat down to work. Maybe it's the combination of light and dark, or maybe it's the webbed lines that are both reaching and falling. Maybe it's because I realized after making the drawing that the minty green background was a color very much associated with the person I lost. Or maybe it is because I feel like the drawing shares the imagery of both a beginning and an ending, a new growth and the end of season. I think I am simply trying to find the beauty in all of it in this drawing.
