"all the glory of the past..." 2020
(178 cm x 142 cm/ 70" x 50", ds345)
As part of my studio practice, immersed in the process of making collages and carving paper, I incorporated words and text into the framework and content of my pictures.
From stories of the moon, the hunt, the Magic Kingdom and the Bulgarian village, I now reached back to my own painting past. I wanted to revisit the vestments, my internal spaces, and be open to what would unfold.
In these paintings, familiar images resurfaced, enhanced and altered by new experiences. Gently, and most assuredly, they summoned old ghosts and were touched by the Fate of Cards.
