HJ Andrews Project: Ambient

HJ Andrews Project: Ambient

I want to find out what colors comprise a creek. It seemed like a fairly straightforward thing to do until I got started. It turns out that everything changes constantly. This is the first iteration of an idea using my white rock. I put it in Watershed 1 near the... Read More
Gauges

Gauges

I’ve been in one of those post-project/pre-project limbo funks. These are the times that, I have been told, I am the most difficult to live with. I don’t have grounding in the limbo times: I’ve let go of the last project, but I haven’t yet... Read More

Years – Bartholomaus Traubeck

Every now and then I come across another artist that is working in a similar vein as myself. Bartholomaus Traubeck has modified a turntable to play slices of wood. The tree rings provide the data that is processed by a programmed system used to create piano music. The... Read More

HJ Andrews Project Beginnings

HJ Andrews Project Beginnings

What would happen with my art, and myself, if I had one place that I worked with for the rest of my life? HJ Andrews Experimental Forest is, in many regards, a lot like much of the forest in the western Cascade Range of Oregon. There are patches of old-growth forest... Read More

Sky/Water I

Began January 26, 2013. Finished September 22, 2013. Mapping is a theme that I have investigated for over a decade. With this project I wanted to see what the visual correlation is with the color patterns created by air and water in the creek below me (I was standing... Read More

Some Thoughts After HJA Day

As Dana Warren passed us palm-sized convex, gridded mirrors, he told us that, as an aquatic ecosystems field researcher, he rarely looks up. Using this tool, a densiometer, to observe the sky, he still doesn’t need to look up. He can continue looking down as he... Read More
Water Underpaintings

Water Underpaintings

I have begun painting the 3 companion panels to the sky paintings. Water is much more irregular than sky, at least this is the case for this particular place at this particular time. The challenge with starting these paintings has been how to deconstruct and separate... Read More

Sticker Shock

Now that I have a long-term project based on HJ Andrews Experimental Forest underway, I thought that I may as well make this BIG. However, making things big is difficult for a few reasons: 1) My studio is not big; 2) My cash flow is also what you can consider ‘not... Read More
