I work in mixed media collage and assemblage. All of my work has a deep spiritual element to it, and I use my work to explore themes that interest and intrigue me. This piece arose from a consistent theme emerging from found objects that attracted me over the space of a year. I was thinking deeply on questions of mortality and longevity, etc, over that time. Day after day during my contemplating walks over that year, circular found objects obstructed my path – I simply could not pass them by. The eternal circle, no beginning, no end called out to me over that year. I collected an entire jar full of circular found objects and eventually worked some of them into this collage. The frame is carved from solid slate, reinforcing the theme of eternity.
