olive, gold, and wine

a personal history of old objects, light and dark, poems and prose, an entire exhale, fingernail clippings, life in one thousand colorful sparks.

Ball-Nogues magic.

"Rip Curl Canyon was a kind of mythical location in the American West where land and water collide, far from Houston’s flat drained swamps. From its highest point at the rear of the gallery, its steep, crevice-like formations sloped down and gained momentum before breaking apart to form ribbons of curling waves. Like rip currents – narrow, fast moving belts of water – the segments twisted and surged toward the front glass entry wall. The view through the glass provided only glimpses of the unfolding topography beyond and invited the visitor to probe deeper. The steady climbing exploring caused the raw cut cardboard to slowly compress with each footstep…over time this accumulation developed into subtle pathways.”

Ball-Nogues Studio is amazing. They know what to do.

Feeling inspire by the work of Gerda Steiner and Jörg Lenzlinger lately. They use nature in an abstract way, and the repetitive hanging never feels overdone to me.
