Handmade collage on wooden panel - 2017
Size: 11 x 1.5 x 14 (L X W X H) inches
The woman pictured here has her fluttering and scarcely elevated thoughts entwined in thinly constructed bars of metal. A barely visible entryway provides access to that cold room of almost no escape. And though the world around moves eternal, absorbed in many sights and sounds, her thoughts remain fixed—obstructed by barriers felt so clearly but bearing no true form for longer than a moment, longer than a day. She can see the flighted thoughts of others catch the free air, yet her own dreams remain fastened behind bars. Reluctantly she surveys her own mind reflected there, displayed in its restricted beauty. Unknown recesses, their mineraled formations built of the fears and broken visions of the past, only helping to encase her mind further within its own watery depths, dark pools that know nothing of time and progress. The world and all its possibilities props her up, ensures she does not fall to the stony floor, but though the possibilities there may hold freedom, they also bear desperate cutting edges, ready to tear where once they helped to protect.
Every collage is signed and dated on the back and sealed with a water-based sealer for protection and longevity. Your collage will include a wire on the back for easy hanging, a print out of its unique story and a personal note from the artist.
