Under The Big Wave



UNDER THE BIG WAVE IS ONE OF MY MOST AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL MIXED MEDIA COMPOSITIONS. WORKING WITH TORN PAPER, GESSO, ACRYLIC PAINT, OIL PASTEL,RICE PAPER AND FOUND IMAGES , THE COMPOSITION TOOK 4 MONTHS TO COMPLETE. IN A WATERY PALETTE OF BLUES AND GREENS, THERE ARE A VARIETY OF IMAGES AND OBJECTS BEING TOSSED ABOUT INSIDE THE WAVE. IT IS NOT LITERALLY AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL, BUT HAS EMBEDDED SYMBOLS AND SHAPES THAT ARE SIGNIFICANT TO MY STORY. THE RANDOM SHAPES AND FOUND IMAGES COULD ALSO EVOKE MEMORIES OF OTHER VIEWERS LIVES. THEY ARE NOT SPECIFIC, SO CAN BE INTERPRETED MANY WAYS BY MANY VIEWERS. THERE ARE LOTS OF LAYERS. LITERALLY - THE MORE YOU LOOK THE MORE YOU SEE.
