Albedo, 2012

16" x 12" x 7"    $425.

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. 

Adele, 2012
Adele, 2012

22.5" x 10" x 2.5"   

Plaster encaustic assemblage created in reverence to Adele by  Gustov Klimt.  The brown river flows from left to right across the piece, passing objects representing the history of the painting, from its creation, into war years, where it was stolen by the Nazis.  Parts of the piece reflect symbols and colors in the Klimt painting.

9.5" x 8"x 58" tall 

Assemblage.    $525.

The pull of love or infatuation struggles through all barriers. 

This piece has a black wood frame that holds a large wood and metal pulley, rusty chain with stirrup.  A metal framework and railroad spike suspends a mannikin hand as it reaches toward another hand at the bottom of the piece. 

 

 

Persona, 2012
Persona, 2012

52" x 33" x 4"   $2500.  Assemblage. 

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.
