Evolving out of the long-standing study of communication in relationships in my practice, I am currently exploring the metaphysical world of channeling with the spirit of the deceased artist and poet Florine Stettheimer and her sisters. This has led to the creation of an multidisciplinary body of work that ranges from the training of talking birds to mimic Florine’s poems, Holography, to the broadcast of an FM pirate radio station that can only be heard within one block of her former home.

In 2018, I founded Crystal Flowers Art Salon, paying homage to site specificity by locating itself in Stettheimer’s former home salon. Artist, patron and cornerstone figure for a prominent group of early 20th century modernist artists, Florine along with her sisters fostered a salon in Manhattan between 1915-1935 which became an important platform of engagement and exchange for artists, poets, musicians and intellectuals.

Represented by Rick West Fine Art Gallery in New York.
