Layering of fabric, paint & mixed media; screening; monoprinting. My new Weathered Wall series references the many layers of life. Cracks in the bark of a tree, chipping and peeling paint, lines in a prson’s face, weathering of a brick or stone wall…these things allow us to see the effects of aging, the layers of meaning in passing time. These pieces are about nature’s cycles of growth and decay and encourage the viewer to appreciate imperfect and muted beauty, beauty that can come only with age.
