Draping Heads.......Death Shrouds.....?
I am not sure where to take these. Works in process. Hopefully creating specific identity's.
Thinking of creating alternative viewing aside from the sterile gallery viewing.
On a table, bed......together as a group.
Input needed.

Wax and Linen Sculptures
Referencing......loss? the abscence of a body? Presence of something else? Otherwordly?
Haveing a hard time with this one.
Referencing hands and legs. Structural supports--> the skeletal? (Thanks Jenn!)

Currently work is progressing on a piece which I have been rust printing for the past month.
" Now Joshua was standing before the angel, clothed with filthy garments. And the angel said to those who were standing before him,"Remove the filthy garments from him"
"Behold, I have taken your iniquity away from you, and I will clothe you with pure vestments."
Zechariah 3:4-5

To visually re created the moment of transformation, where earthly garments are being exchanged for heavenly ones.

Today I had quite a bit of trouble figuring out a hanging system for this piece.
Frustrated ......

Show at Henry's.
So I am having a exhibition of prints and mixed media drawings at Henry's.
Get a coffee.
Look at my stuff.

It feels good to have work showing. The best part was this woman shown who told me she was a working artist gave me a new artist name and said I should be showing at the art center!!!!
