ENDANGERED: Fine Art & Photography Contest 2018 Submission.
Although, I did not realize it at the time, after viewing the ‘Screaming Pope’ (by Francis Bacon) I was inspired to set off on my own to create emotional figurative work. Emotional Rivers, both good and bad, is a theme that runs through my artwork. I find myself traveling through the lives of these figures in a sort of storytelling type of time travel.
These multi-media works often include three-dimensional elements; some embedded, and some surface mounted. Encaustic and other mediums have been used to embed vintage jewelry, glass, handmade paper, photos and ephemera from passed lives. These pieces are assembled together as would pieces in a puzzle and are added as an exclamation point referencing the story telling and the sense of history. One of the most unique aspects of this work is its multi-dimensional quality.
