Self-Curating

I am preparing for a solo exhibition at the end of this year with Ro2 Gallery in Dallas, Tx. They have a space which will only accommodate some of my recent work, so today I am looking around at the work in my studio. There is the logistic question of how much work will fit into their space, but there is also an ongoing question for me about the nature of my process. I would guess that 1/3 of the work I make will be edited out.  It is a necessary process to allow for a cohesively expressive showing of work. 

I make large scale photographs (22 x 30") in addition to paintings (24 x 36") and small mixed media works (9x12"). The title of my exhibition will be Flora Imaginarium which describes the botanical subject matter in all of the works. 

Here are some of the works that will definitely be included in the exhibition.
