Opening for Group Show at Martina Johnston Gallery in Berkeley, this Saturday

Cremation. C-print, 2013.

I have a photo in Four Core Chambers, a group exhibition of fourteen new works that explore the contours of the human heart, both romantically and medically. The artists involved are all based in the United States, and together their works map the gallery itself as an analog of the human heart, with the gallery’s central “chambers” helping to shape the flow of viewers’ experiences.

I'm really excited about finally showing with several artists I've known a long time and whose work I love, including Jeanne Stern, Leslie Dreyer, and Keith Wilson. Thanks to curator Katie Anania.
