Bridging the Gap Project kickoff video

I'm excited to officially launch the Bridging the Gap project. This ceramic collaboration creates an artistic dialogue between myself and aboriginal artists. This spring I will travel into the heart of the Australian outback to facilitate a ceramic workshop at the Ernabella Arts Center. Located in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands, 275 miles southwest of Alice Springs, the center is a place for Anangu artists to promote their cultural heritage and improve their lifestyle through art making. During my month long trip I will offer my skills as a potter to aid the artists working at the center. 
While my primary interest in the project is one of service to this unique community, I am excited to learn the drawing style and patterns of the Anangu people. I am continually fascinated with aboriginal methods of story telling that rely on drawing, image making, and sound. The time I spend in the community will be a valuable contribution to my own evolution as an artist.
