Sherd Series: Lithics and sherds fill space in museum collections, measured by pounds and cubic feet. They are remnants of a different time. I have often marveled at the fragments, and try to imagine under what circumstances they were made, who made them, and how the whole vessel came to be in pieces. The sherds become pieces of abstract art, painted by someone whose patience, skill, and energy still resonate.
Light Echo Series: The Light Echo series consists of three gold-leafed paintings. The cosmological significance of Chaco Canyon primarily inspired these paintings. Similarly to my previous tapestry work, I continue to layer color but in a new medium. I see these paintings as visual echoes of what has gone before, the reappearance of ancient light.
