love in the ruins; sex over 50


I began work on love in the ruins; sex over 50 in 2003, the year that I turned fifty and my husband turned sixty-two. The project has been ongoing.

Four images from the most recent iteration of love in the ruins; sex over 50, titled TORSOS shot in 2017, plus all eight images originally shown in 2014 in Bushwick, will be part of  IN THE CUT - The Male Body in Feminist Art. The exhibition was curated by Andrea Jahn, and opens at Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken on the 18th of May 2018 and will be on view through the 30th of September 2018. The exhibition includes Louise Bourgeois, Sophie Calle, Anke Doberauer, Tracy Emin, Alicia Framis, Kathleen Gilje, Eunice Golden, Pasquier Grall, Anna Jermolaewa, Herlinde Koelbl, Julika Rudelius, Joan Semmel, Carolee Schneemann, Jana Sterbak and Betty Tompkins.
