From the artist:
I currently work with acrylic and collage, combining elements like gold foil, traditional Lokta papers, painted images, and ephemera to create movement, pattern and evoke emotion. The images are built of layers that simultaneously reveal and obscure, push and pull the viewer in and out of the artwork. You can feel the influence of music and dance in the pulsing rhythms of color and design. My work examines the complexity of our lives and emotions and reminds us that we are not our most obvious expression, but a complicated compilation of all our past experiences and our future hopes and dreams. I invite the viewer to make their own revelations as they explore the surface and depth of these works.
This exhibit includes work inspired by the incredible sense of joy I felt from the people of Nepal when I visited in October as part of a mission trip. I was awed by the happiness and resilience that these people show in the face of poverty. Their country is one of vibrant colors, an appropriate palette for the beautiful countryside filled with flowers and cities filled with life.
15% of the proceeds from any sales of these artworks will go to the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation so that they may continue to support the medical mission trip to the Lower Solukhumbu region of Nepal. One painting, “Marigolds” will be on sale for $1,500.00. The entire $1,500.00 will be donated to The Hope Home for Girls, an orphanage in Kathmandu. This amount of money will feed, clothe, and educate one girl for an entire year.
