I am so honored to have been interviewed by artist Nancy Natale for ProWax Journal. ProWax is a quarterly journal focusing on artists working in wax and encaustic. Although I don't use wax as a primary medium, my work and teaching has always been deeply engaged with material culture. Nancy and I had a lively exchange from Prato. (her patience with me and schedules and time changes was divine- thanks Nancy!)

Words have appeared historically as artistic forms in illuminated manuscripts, in Arabic text on the walls of mosques and in its mosaic murals, on Chinese calligraphic scrolls. ‘Word’ as contemporary art form has been popularized by contemporary artists Ruche, Wiener, Kruger and Holzer, Anastasi and others. Words have the power to hurt and to heal, to be offered as prayer or diatribe. Some of these ‘word’ facets will be explored in the works presented at the HVCCA.

Elementary: Paintings by Sharon Butler, Sharon Horvath and Patricia Miranda

Opening Reception: July 14th from 4 - 6pm
This exhibition highlights the work of three artists who focus on the basic components of painting. Sharon Butler’s paintings illuminate process and materials. Sharon Horvath makes intimate works that ponder the mysterious alchemy of imaginary forms and material color. Patricia Miranda uses organic dyes and pigments to reconstruct and recontextualize enigmatic objects. Individually and collectively, these artists plumb the basic elements of art, taking contemporary painting in intriguing new directions.
