As you are so I once was.
As I am so shall you be.

Age is interesting. It gives one a particular perspective on things. What once seemed easy and light becomes more ponderous and weighty. The frivolous undertakings of life, those things we once called fun, carry with them consequences and complicity.

Bon chance.

life and websites... charles tucker and lane cooper

Charles Tucker, my frequent collaborator and partner, and I are working to become more web savvy. Chuck and I both have websites up and now we're trying to figure out how best to use them. In addition I'm trying to balance my personal practice as an artist and my work with events at CIA, and teaching. Honestly I feel very excited and hopeful, as if a number of things are about to come together in a positive way. The studio-house is about to be ready. (I keep thinking this). I imagine evenings sitting in the house surrounded by our work, friends and visitors who are interested in ideas. The exchange of ideas; I want very much to create a space where this can happen. I do believe that when ideas and thinkers meet the sum can be greater than the parts.

Check out our websites! and when the house really is open I'll let you know the progress of my fantasy. The picture is from my "real" home.
