THE TRADITIONAL AND THE CONTEMPORARY

A PART / APART

Artist-Designed House For Sale

 

One-room Lincoln School (1867)
Converted to residence 1962
3000’ addition and artist studio/workshop (1990-1998)

Completely refreshed (2017). Semi-rural northern Chester County, Pennsylvania
 
Coming here is an experience.
There is a strong sense of welcoming;
It has a warmth and a generous spirit.

The entry is quiet—modest. Inside, it is wonderfully open and extends to the back 3.7 acres and the adjoining 30 acre natural preserve.

Wind Painting: Let the piece tell you what it wants to be. 
Rustoleum on plywood, 48 x 48”, Elizabethtown College, 2012 Here, to get more sustained burn, I wanted to pre-‘soak’ a board with heavy drips and globs of paint; the shifting wind ‘moved’ and pushed the paint. Who was I to interfere with that!!!

I am profoundly involved in creating spaces of still and quiet…places of reflection and contemplation…so that they ask me –and the viewer—to pause and listen to the quiet so that we can make sense of ourselves….

 

I have always searched for the ‘beginnings’. What are the earliest sources of ideas? I am fundamentally connected to deep geologic time…the bedrock.

One thought on “News

  1. Jay,
    Was just using some of your graciously given cards to send notes to several people.
    Enjoyed pausing on your website and feeling the nature and gravity of your passion.
    I am always in awe.
    Don’t stop…if you are still in “the flow”…..
    For me, retirement is like many doors opening…and it is great to choose which to step through…focusing and settling in is still on the horizon…but the process is something.
