A NEW PERFORMANCE – “dust to dust”

Hair, dirt, earth pigment, water, paper; materials I have been using in my new painting. While painting I contemplate our human relationship with the earth, with nature. In this performance I commit my entire body to the contemplation and to the painting of a 30 ft work.

Dirt, mud, dust is a substance laden with biota, the primordial glup we came from and shall eventually return to.

DIRT IS LIFE. DURING OUR LIFETIME WE ARE THE CUSTODIANS OF DIRT – THE MARK-MAKERS – All LIFE RETURNS TO DIRT.

On Wednesday November 9
7pm sharp – 8pm
Limited Seating
