Deepening Journey 3'x9' Available

Made in three panels this piece flows with continuous movement. 

Made with up-cycled watercolor paper fibers (cotton) that I re-form into sheets in an unconventional method.  This technique creates bubbles, flaws and the beautiful deckle edges. I fuse the sheets with wax, resin and a soft iridescent oil paint that creates a subtle glow highlighting the paper. I fuse the paper to the panel so it floats above the next creating light and shadow on the next sheet.  As you walk around the piece the light catches it and is constantly changing with the natural light and any spot light you shine on it.
