Exploration of new materials & Great Barrington, Egremont Plain, W.E.B. DuBois' boyhood home

We Don't Die, We Multiply, Artist Statement: "In my new work created in the past several months at Darrow, I was concerned with responding to my new environs here in the Northeast. The works are grounded in an exploration of new materials and also in my learning of Great Barrington, or more accurately, Egremont Plain, as the boyhood home of Dr. W.E.B. DuBois. Many of the works are inspired by the ideas of multiplicity and iteration between concept and form, a result of pondering the passage of time, in regard to the modest land inhabited by this great thinker juxtaposed with his enormous body of work.

My interests in these new works are manifold; on one hand concerned with the actual site itself—and the power potentially held by the remnants of its ruins—and an exploration of materials that engage concepts of time, repetition and transcendence."
