As a native New Englander I’m very conscious of the weather and the seasons. These two elements very much dictate what we do, what we wear, even what we eat. For a very long time I’ve also been interested in multiple images, the culmination of which define the where and when of our existence. A third fascination for me is improvisation, as a means by which we bring all of these elements into some kind of focus.
These works combine all of these things, and in a helpful way toward all this, is a device called a predella. This refers to the series of panels across the bottom of the main images above. This is a word which, in Italian, translates as “foot board”. It was a means, that in late Gothic and Early Renaissance altar pieces, some very large in size, could further describe the elements of the larger image of the altarpiece above. For me, this has evolved over several years, into an improvisation, much like music can be improvised, of the image above.
