process

i am so honored to have been notified of my acceptance into the new jersey metal arts guild juried member exhibition called 'process'... 


my pull to this exhibition began with the title and then the goal of the show - to share what goes into the making of a piece of work... i almost didn't do it... i was packing and to my rational brain this was not what i was supposed to be doing... but it kept calling to me urgently, to the point that i was distracted beyond reason and almost heartsick at the thought of not bringing forth what had been gestating in my mind... while my hands moved surely through the process there was a great deal of anticipation - i was trying something new...
