Tracing the Way

We see the past through the lens of the present. Points that brought us to where we find ourselves become markers of a path we construct, but which, in reality, is anything but straight. More like finding seeds that begin to grow out of debris we thought we’d abandoned. This is a piece from March, 2013 (#139) that was lost when we fled the Ox. Here was the anti-portrait (what we see is not what we are). There was a dirty, crusted window screen like a veil over the face. The trash assemblages I was making had begun to emerge as paintings. I recognize in this piece a link to what I’ve found opening into the future.





#210 (from 2013, work from the Ox)

#210 from September. 2013. An assemblage from the Ox, a car door panel, with acrylic color–what I call, ReCyclations–recycling trash to art.
Wonder what happened to this one? … check my log. Ah…poet,  Kimberly Ann Southwick bought this! Does she still have it?
