2018

These images developed out of an invitation to engage with the legacy and practice of Wisconsin based artist Mary Nohl. After touring her artist environment and the extensive collection at the John Michael Kohler Art Center, I was drawn to her "mobiles." These fragile constructions of glass, wood and glue were a testament to balance and exploding with urgency in their making. Were these models? studies? a way to exponentially capture the sunrise on Lake Michigan? These constructions were suspended in her living room, dancing in midair. Mary Nohl mobile #395 was the first to catch my eye. I began photographing the shadows she cast. I find myself dancing in Mary's penumbra.
