I Need to Make Things Even if Nobody Cares

SOLD Re-Volved

Sometimes a piece languishes in the studio ... maybe it was a practice painting or an experiment that didn't quite work. Or maybe it doesn't speak to me anymore. Part of a canvas panel that I cut up for book boards ... I think. It's been awhile! ... this bit spoke to me so built a cradle panel for it and added wax medium inscribing lines and circles (and my fave plastic circle template's fraction bits that show in the wax=Score!) The title pertains to revolving circles, one's personal evolution and the "Re's": Reuse Recycle Repurpose.

Maker of Things

The little details, the subtle nuance.
How we feel, what we see and smell and hear.
The distant call of a crow.
The feel of the Spring sun on our face as we emerge from the dark, cold winter.
These are the experiences and layers that interest me.

Because everything is connected to everything.

Our stories may be different but why we tell them is the same.
To feel connected and loved.
To be heard.

Through layers of wax and plaster, paint and photographs.
With rusty nails and found objects and wire.
These are my stories.
