A Call to Nurses
As a N.Y. State Licensed Massage Therapist, teacher and sculptor I am one of the artists participating in the 61st Exhibition of Central New York Artists, at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Museum of Art, in Utica, NY. The exhibition features 38 artists who live in a 100-hundred mile radius of Utica.

The installation I've made is titled Nurse Buttons (m.o.p.) An Internist. I am seeking responses from Nurses to accompany my work. Basically, the work is about a nurse from the turn of the century and what she does on her day off for self-care.

The five segments which comprise Nurse Buttons (m.o.p.) An Internist are listed below by individual title. They are made with: furniture, coverlets, light fixtures, paintings and photographs, bleeding glasses, found or made elements, and a blue bread box

The following are the individual titles for each of the five segments

  • Nurse Buttons' (m.o.p.) Eye Rinsing and Hand Washing Station, with a clear handle (introspection accountability, acceptance, forgiveness, and personal growth)

  • Nurse Buttons (m.o.p.) As a Young Girl, Nurse Buttons on her day off wearing a new hat, Bleeding Glasses, Best Friends, and Other Photographs All Bolstered up by the Brackets Striped nearly bare(friendship and other clarifying activities)

  • Nurse Buttons' (m.o.p.) Full-Sized Bed and Coverlets (resting and dreaming)

  • Nurse Buttons' (m.o.p.) Blue Bread Box (nourishment and sustenance)

  • Nurse Buttons' (m.o.p.) Boar Bristle Body and Nail Brush II: Lessons for Survival in the WildernessHow to Thrive (detoxification, elimination, and renewal)

The following is my artists statement as it appears in the exhibition
Environment, body and the residue of activity are sublime historiansorganic recorders of everyday life. They are my constant starting points as I explore the relationship between place, activity, and healing. In this series, Nurse Buttons (m.o.p.) An Internist, I continue exploration of ideas about and sources for nourishment.

Through repetition, the intimacy of miniature scale and strangely familiar objects, I hope to elicit a slowing down response in viewers, inviting them to make room for inquiry as they relate to the installations, the interior scenes embedded in the installations and in their memories.
