About my artwork
I started my career on the stage and this theatricality is evident in all of my work. I like costumes and landscapes and things that come from reality but are not real. I am rigorous in study and loose in application. I want to answer all of the big questions in life, but this raises more questions. I want to do everything at once but I can only do one thing at a time.
Artists I like
Haruki Murakami, Ahn Eun Me, Mats Ek, Sophie Calle, Jackie Chan, Chemecki-Lerner, DV8, Marcel Duhamp, Sergei Eisenstein, Jet Li, David Lynch, Pak Nam Jun, Astor Piazolla, Tsuyoshi Shirai, Josh Greene. I can't help but like Matthew Barney, other highly theatrical video artists whose names slip my mind, the incomparable Carlos Saura and Antonio Gades (a dancer's dancer). I like nuevo flamenco, Noh Theater, Classical Indian Dance, Slovak folk music, Balanescu Quartet, David Bowie, a crazy movie called Liquid Sky, Jim Henson, many of the wonderful artists I have seen on this site...
opera, philosophy, sci-fi, hiking, swimming,

Ongoing Project: Stories of the Sun God

Seven Golden Birds share a secret, the keeping of which brings death to many. A jilted poet hatches a plot that will eventually unravel the most elusive of these secrets. The Sun God rules with a merciless iron fist and his only friend is the Magical Bird, an imposter who can be all things to all people. In this tale of ruthless information exchange, no human or imaginary bird is untouched by the influence of a brilliant but sadistic ruler who eventually finds freedom while the others meet their deaths. The narrative draws from ideas as old as the tales Rome stole from Greece. It is a meditation on the nature of power and the importance of information in any age.

This fast-moving story of sex, murder and vengeance combines the efforts of choreographer Christy Walsh and Danish painter Michael Chang.

During the first iteration as a multi-media dance-theater piece, the hour-long and action-packed narrative unfolded through Walsh’s ballet/flamenco – influenced choreography, martial arts, dialogue, and video. The amalgamation created a colorful but dangerous world steeped in historical reference and presented as a decorative fairy tale that describes an elaborate modern mythology.

Press Quotes:

Jasmina Wellinghoff of the San Antonio Express-News calls Walsh’s choreography:
“…imaginative, edgy and sprinkled with unusual effects and configurations” and the content of her dances as “realized in a novel way”.

Cath Alexandrine Danneskold-Samsoe says of Michael Chang:
“Like a Janus head hovering over the arch between the rationalism of the West and the intuitionism of the East.”
