Fountain: A Place For Tears

Human Scale
Some monks who have achieved great spiritual maturity experience a steady stream of tears for a period of up to two years. Pictured next to its original drawing, this site specific intstallation embodied this passage across the mystical gulf, tears that are neither silly nor shameful.  This project was funded by an Artist Enrichment Grant from Kentucky Foundation for Women and exhibited at the Lexington Art League in Lexington, Kentucky.

Nam semper semper ex
In porttitor pellentesque sapien

Artist Statement
My work employs translucent materials such as watercolor, layered tracing paper and wax to evoke the atmospheric qualities of light. It often explores my interests in contemplative spaces and interpersonal relationships.

Layering materials both conceals and reveals forms, suggesting dimension and history.  

Small works often lead me to make larger installations or sculptures, but I continually return to the two-dimensional surface.
