Mineral Kingdom, 18″ x 18″, 2011
These discs were originally created as a three-artist collaborative piece. Called “Core Sample,” the sculpture was exhibited at The Art Students League of Denver.
The discs appear in the order in which they were created. They constitute the inspiration, substance, and process of the artist’s life. Because they speak to the body, the Earth, and the beyond, they are called “Worlds of Inspiration”.
The paintings commemorate six ways the artist’s life is built and nourished:
The Mineral Kindom
The Flora Kingdom
The Fauna Kingdom
Light and Sound
Love, Wisdom, and Knowledge
Sun, Moon, and Stars
Medium: Acrylic, inks, rice paper, found papers, found objects, metallic leaf, on recycled wood and board.
