ARTIST'S PERSONAL STATEMENT: Eggs and Drapery

"I arrived at Lick Observatory in the spring of 1993 to join my astronomer beau. Mt. Hamilton would become my home and photographic subject for the next 18 years. I had a small telescope as a child and had taken an astronomy class in college while studying music and art, but had never visited a world class observatory. The rounded telescope domes on Mt. Hamilton were different sizes, a mix of silver and white, and constructed in clean architectural styles and materials that spanned a century. They were clustered on the summit like eggs in a rocky nest. The first exercise in my college beginning drawing class immediately came to mind. Near a softly lit window, our instructor had placed a handful of hen's eggs in the folds of a cotton drape, white on white. Easy, I thought, with freshman naiveté. But I struggled to translate the seemingly simple, yet agonizingly complex shapes and shadows onto a flat sheet of paper. We worked on that deceptive still life study for a week, barely long enough to comprehend the real lesson: this was a life's work. Decades later, the task continues through the lens of a camera, independent of location and subject. The fundamental question is ever present: With every frame, how do I communicate the essence of 'eggs and drapery' - capturing light and shadow on sensuous forms and shapes, deciding how best to authentically transmit the experience of being here in this place, in this moment?"
