"Connections" 24X20X1 - encaustic/mixed media on cradled birch panel
This work transcribes a language that only the subconscious fully understands, with images that never clearly take shape, but instead layer upon one another to create what cannot be articulated with words. It speaks to the things we hold deep inside ourselves, sometimes to protect, sometimes to forget. It intends to access those deep places within ourselves, that are buried in the subconscious and that flicker at the surface of our memory, providing glimpses into the past experiences that have molded us into who we are.
