"There is a paradox of wind to water in the desert.  We have so much wind and we use so little of it.  We have so little water and we use so much of it. 

Wind lifts water.  Ideas lift images."

In a theater, the proscenium is the vertical plane of space that separates the stage from the audience. It is called, metaphorically, The Fourth Wall.

The small town in which I live has many historic houses under renovation. With the owners permission, I occasionally set up a studio work space on site and draw along as the structures are transformed.

One day after all the workers had gone home, I sat in the shell of the house. The floor joists were exposed and the far exterior walls had been torn out. I was backstage now. The luminous space ahead beckoned. But the floorboards were gone and it would be a risky, if not perilous, crossing to the light, if I dared.

As an artist, I begin each day in a quiet, darkened backstage and then test my resolve to risk the crossing, to make my way through that metaphorical plane into the light.

This is The Proscenium Project.
