2006 GALLERY 'A'




THE ICING ON THE CAKE
3-16" x 36"
Encaustic / collage - (2006)
A celebratory response to Canada's decision regarding the legalization of gay and lesbian marriage. The cakes are covered with layers of beeswax and an old wedding dress was used as the collage element. Confetti is strewn about, and layers are carved out to reveal the depth of the wax.

KNOWING / NOT KNOWING
2 - 7" x 7"
Encaustic / collage - (2006)
An opportunity to play with the ideas of what it means to know, and letting go of the need to know. Do I know more when I know less?




BE WITH WHAT IS
7" x 7"
Encaustic / collage - (2006)
An older piece scraped down, exposed beneath the glass in unexpected subtle beauty. A flower with such exuberance and the broken thread contribute to the theme of acceptance.





HELD LOOSELY
10" x 10"
Encaustic / collage - (2006)
Experimentation, with many layers of wax and scraping away build a dense textured surface. A photocopy transfer of a Monarch caterpillar hints at the idea of transformation.




LIKE A STONE IN THE SEA
10 - 12" x 36"
Encaustic - (2006)
Inspired by a song lyric, I imagined the path that a stone would make as it falls effortlessly down through the water. there is no manipulation, but only a gentle, natural fallling.
