I find places in nature that appear chaotic: a roadside hill of dead leaves and new vines, plants falling over the side of a weathered parking lot wall, rocks and plants on the side of a mountain, each with its own set of chaotic attributes that I find fascinating.
Each piece begins with a wooden frame holding wire mesh within it. I clay the mesh - create recesses, projections and shapes so they become semi-sculptural. I use beads, cloth, mirror, and twine to embellish textures and paint it with acrylic and tempera paints.
These pieces are large, mystical; a peek into the chaotic flow of natural phenomena that contain their own unique kinds of order.
I love creating art this way because I become free from the tight control of living in our modern society. Here my work is playful, free, risky and I get to explore new worlds.
