16" x 12" x 7"  SOLD

Plaster encaustic with photo, wire, rusty metal, wood, paint.

I took this photo of the dead bird and its shadow.  White represents death in many societies as it does here.  The rusty piece of twisted metal that protrudes from the piece creates a marvelous wing-like shadow on the wall when light is directed at it on the wall.

One of my favorite pieces.

Born To Lead
Born To Lead

The story of the Dalai Lama is fascinating.  When one dies they search for the reincarnated soul in a toddler.  He is taken to live and learn with the monks - so is he born to lead or taught to lead?

Prisoner of Her Own Life
Prisoner of Her Own Life

Do you ever feel that you are the prisoner of your circumstances?  This wire, paper and string assemblage on a piece of chair shares that feeling that you can get tied to your own life.  But you can choose to change that as well.

Persona

52" x 33" x 4"  2012Assemblage. 

Using a found rusty wire coil baby mattress as the base, I hand tied strips of linen, some tea stained, around each coil and within each is a small baby mask made from wire and paper.  Looking closely at the faces you will notice that each has its own personality and is in its own little nest of linen, some more cushy than others.  Meaning resides in the concept that every person is born into different circumstances in life, some more loving and comforting than others - fate plays a role in our start in life, the rest is up to us.
