|I am honored to be included, in the group of artists taking part in this show, for the month of November 2017.|
Please make a point of coming out to see the extraordinary work that is on display . Gun violence is out of control. As an artist, I feel that my creative process, helps to give me a voice in the war against the unrestrained use of guns in this country.
|"For I dipped into the future,|
far as the EYES could see,
saw a vision of the world
and all the wonder that could be."
- Alfred Lord Tennyson
The eyes of Guy Anthony Green, captivated me since I first received the photos from his mother for this project. I have always loved exploring faces, crows feet, laugh lines, scars......the asymmetry....the EYES and the stories they tell.
By painting with acrylics, drawing with charcoal and pencil, collaging with vintage papers, painted papers and then adding multiple layers of encaustic medium, I wanted to preserve the story of Guy and imagine what his future would have been.
