Transcriptions Series

BOOKS, SCROLLS, AND ANCIENT LANGUAGES

The Transcriptions Series is created around the concepts of ancient books, ancient languages, and ancient prayers. These canvases have been influenced by the books and scrolls unearthed from antiquity. Sanskrit, Hebrew, Latin, and Ancient Phoenician are some of the languages incorporated within these mixed media paintings.

PLAYING WITH text and CANVAS ON CANVAS

My experience with the Transcriptions Series has given me the opportunity to create with canvas cloth. Now I am hooked and interested in continuing this exploration of my new favorite material. The current focus is on methods for using the cloth to showcase text. The use of text in paintings is another gem I am carrying forward from the Transcriptions.

Photo Mixed Media

COMBINING PHOTOS, PAINT, AND PAPERS ON MULTIPLE LAYERS

Using mixed media and multiple canvas layers, these paintings become multi-dimensional windows to the recessed photo within. Several series were created, each with a focus on a different collection of images. The paintings became sacred spaces in the Buddha series, symbols of the passage of time in the Window series, and reflections of the essence of  the photos in the Silhouessence series.

Experiencing the Process.

 

The process of creating a piece of artwork is a journey requiring a number of steps before the finished product can be seen and appreciated. The artist gets to experience the joy of playing with the tools and materials to make their aesthetic vision come to life. I am so very grateful for the process and to be able to play with my materials to explore my creativity.  

 
 

Here are some images of the process:
