Living Out Loud

If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you I am here to live out loud      Emile Zola

I’m feisty and I don’t take instruction well. In my Ramapo College, Judith Peck spring sculpture class, we were supposed to make a “head” out of clay. I’m 69 years old – I don’t have a huge lifetime in front of me to experiment with what I want to say – this is all I got, this is it. And I wanted to create the image I have had rolling around in my head. So I made the ear, eye and curvy shapes of clay, on a plastic covered square of plywood, photographed it, fussed with color in Paint and Photoshop and finally got what I had in my head. Damn, but I am having fun!!!

Powerful repetitive sets of rolling tape loops amidst chaotic, atonal wandering vocal meanderings. I am drawn to the crisp spaces between the sounds.
