A Parallel Life

  • January 30, 2019

It took me quite awhile to figure out what I saw in this photo, something I'd saved from a magazine and stashed in my collage drawer. Date unknown. I kept coming back to that spindly aerial, something from a by-gone era, a time before. Which got me thinking about time in general, parallel lives more specifically and my Muse ran with it.

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.
