distance made good, navig.  
1.  the distance between a point where an object has been and 
a point where it is at present, measured along a rhumb line
connecting the two points.  
2.  the wayfarer uses a dead reckoning system to determine her 
course.  
3.  inspiration determines the rhumb line and dead reckoning 
system.

As distance is the extent or amount of space between two things, 
the artists in this exhibition traverse (meta) physical distance 
through a variety of mediums to realize their inspiration.  Long 
term collaborative communication, contemplation, moving the image 
up from the wilderness of the sub-conscious and provoking pen to 
paper, brain to cyberspace, needle to thread, bone to feather.  
In the end when the work arrives to the realm of public viewing 
and truly inspires another, the artist has at last made good the 
distance.

My aura portraits are a charting of 
the energy between the body and the 
environment.  They are a direct 
manifestation of a particular 
ongoing conversation and partnership.

Longissima Via: Not straight, but 
snakelike, a path that unites the 
opposites.
A joshua tree of shredded maps 
stands at the intersection of here 
and there.

My life is about transitions, which 
last about 20 years each time. This 
piece is a celebration and closure 
of two cycles since my birth. Being 
born in the Czech Republic and 
re-born in the United States.
