"Navigating Heart", Encaustic Mixed Media & Collage, 24 x 24 x 3 - Detail of heart
Here is the first piece for 2012 and one that will be my title piece for the new exhibit at Homer Watson Gallery, Kitchener, "Navigating Heart" will open March 25th, 2- 4 p.m.
A lot went into this piece, I sculpted my heart, left it open intentionally, and placed within it old love letters, a past story, and left room for new stories to unfold...The heart is layered with paper collage, maps, bengali letters/script, handmade paper. Maps will be a common element in this new exhibit.
