Statement for the Water/Fall Set



In 2014 poet and translator of Isabelle Eberhardt, Sharon Bangert,

and myself decided, before it was too late, to work together on

a common theme,  my paintings with Sharon’s poetry.  Titled

“Water/Fall” these paired works explore flow and transformation

in watercolor and words.  People have asked whether the paintings

or the poems came first, assuming that one of us ‘responded’ to

the other’s works.  In fact, we worked quite separately, only pairing

the paintings and poems when we had the number we had decided

on for the exhibition that resulted.
