40” x 45”

Found wood stretcher frame, plexiglass, vine, resin, book cover, end pages, driftwood, magazine cut out, MDF, newsprint, mesh fabric, acrylic, wood glue.

Transitive aspects in art and everyday thinking are captured in this piece. Like William James, I too believe in the powerful nuances of the everyday and the hidden importance of subtle monotonous moments. Here I have included everyday objects that are seemingly insignificant to the viewer, but highly charged for myself due to the time and location I gathered them. In pulling together scattered objects from many different places and times, I bring together fragments, reaching for whole mind stasis.

Scrap wood, spirit doll handmade by artist, banana peel, orange ring, eucalyptus leaves, bark, tarot deck box part, house paint, oil paint.

Max Ernst’s 1955 essay in Inspiration to Order mirrors the way I create my work. His excitement over an illustrated catalog with depictions of anthropological, mineralogical and psychological mirror the symbology in my current body of work. Ernst’s explanation of his use of collage when juxtaposing different images together and how he can access a dreamlike state and can create a true and poetic object as a result.
