The Long Now, 2014, was an exhibition hosted by Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA. The large-scale paintings created immersive environments for the visitors. With material combinations of digital printmaking on heavy weight watercolor paper mounted to ACM aluminum panels, with water based paints including airbrushed acrylics and inks, and oil paints. The works use multiple panels tiled together to create mural-scale paintings for architectural conditions such as Echoes Embrace a 20 ft piece for a corner, and Chimera a painting for a curved wall, two 10 ft square paintings that faced each other in a confined arrangement.
The goals of this exhibition were to sensitize visitors to the physicality of their embodied cognitive and perceptual processes, and invite them to contemplate the function and actions of their own imagination on these processes.
This exhibition evolved in a dialogue with Curator Dr. Leonie Bradbury.
Many of these works have been included in other exhibitions and are still available for sale.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
