“Don’t play what’s there, play what’s not there.” Miles Davis

We all begin as children. Playing.  Wondering.  Exploring.  Touching.  Curiosity is sparked by anything and everything. The world around us invites us.  Children know this.  They teach us that nothing is boring, really. Everything has the potential to excite, reveal, enliven.  But only if you can see what’s really there.  As artists we need that unending interest to survive. We thrive on thresholds.  We need to find the chipped paint on the frame of an old door and say, “that looks like an elephant!” not, “dang I need to repaint this door.” Every fold, crease and crinkle in life holds a story. Artists and children know this and depend on this!

Monks and Mannequins is about beauty, the beauty in us, on us, around us, among us and all about us.
