Portfolio > Elusive Containment 2005

The Vessel, archetypal in its nature, has meaning for all. We each have our own stories that could be expressed through an exploration of this form. These open bowls are for me, just such an exploration – a visual expression of this particular moment in my life.
Everything about these works; the dimensions, the textures, the collaged materials, the painted circular shapes – hovering, forming, dissolving and reforming, all these things are chosen elements. Elements that I have brought together to form mixed media artworks. The creation of the work is a finite process. The fact that there is a solid final end product, ironically, is the antithesis of some of the very ideas and thoughts that I am exploring here.
Everything is change. Nothing stands still. From one breath to the next I am transformed in the great and grand flow that permeates all aspects of my being.
