This new body of work is a whimsical exploration of the notion of time & travel through flight. It is about the possibilities that could be, if we choose to step out of our comfort zones, to discover new lands, create new stories and embrace fresh new ways of being.
The imagery of the various modes of vehicles in flight, ladders, wings, lotuses, houses, clock faces and flying trees with roots depict for me the various portals to time & travel. I specifically use the opposing textured and smooth areas of encaustic medium to further explore the sense of change that comes from taking steps outside of one’s everyday routine.
