Louisiana: Backwoods and Natural Anomalies

Travel

Louisiana is strange enough as is, so it wasn’t to hard to discover the places I’m showing to you in this post. We (me + significant other + dog) traveled 30 minutes north of Baton Rouge to find the world’s largest living Bald Cypress tree and rumors of cliffs and waterfalls hidden in the woods.

Sneak preview! Here are some snippets of an upcoming art exhibition in New Orleans, Louisiana that I organized and am collaborating in for the SGC International Printmaking Conference. Uncharted Territories: A Printscape is a collaborative installation by a group of emerging artists in South Louisiana. The installation includes a conglomeration of large format printmaking, papermaking, fiber, video projection, sound and light.

Get ready for some juicy photos of Passing Notes: A Handmade Paper Collaborative Installation at the Gya Gallery at Yeyo Arts Collective in St. Louis, MO. This was a project I was part of in March 2011 with Megan Singleton and Sarah Shearer ( fellow Louisiana State University printmaking and sculpture graduate students).

Inspiration

 

Spalding’s catchfly? The Quaking Aspen? All foreign to someone from Connecticut/Louisiana. Never-the-less, these are endangered species residing in the Zumwalt Prairie Preserve in Oregon.

Around a month ago, my dear sister called me up and asked: “Want to come and volunteer to tear down some fences?” “Sounds great!” I said. Oregon is beautiful, I thought to myself (it’s true, as above photograph proves).
