I’m using “three dimensional” elements in my paintings, layering watercolor, acrylic and water soluble oil paints with organic and synthetic objects like antique glass, feathers, salt, felted wool, paper, antique beads, plastics, and household items that are glued and sewn to the canvas to explore the human perception of time and the social organization of time (temporality) and progress, and examine human schema (patterns of thought or behavior that organize categories of information and the relationships among them; a mental structure of preconceived ideas, a framework representing some aspect of the world, or a system of organizing and perceiving new information), paradox, and transformation to the useful and beautiful.
