A dear friend and extraordinary painter, Kelly Leal, developed an exhibition seeded in a critique group of artists and writers that we used to belong to. The exhibition was held at Piante Gallery in Eureka, Ca., in 2018.  

 

Towards this exhibition, I collaborated with writer Amy Parker, whose literary tapestry Beasts and Children struck me as descriptively enchanting. The works I created are based on her superb short story Kingdom by the Sea. In reverse fashion, Parker wrote a work called Pica Ceremony Yokai based on two new works I created regarding concepts of geophagia and related practices that border on mythology.  

Amy Parker was awarded the prestigious 2018 Calvino Prize from the University of Louisville for this work.
