Conundrum, 30” x 22” mixed media

This series seeks equipoise between the micro and macro elements of our world. The works are ‘constructed’ layer-upon-layer by combining varied mark-making with complex paper inlays and collage. Most pieces begin with a differentiated ground of boundless space created with mists of charcoal powder. This expanse becomes a container for worlds within worlds composed of prepared inlays and papers, and elaborated by direct drawing.
