I think I’ve mentioned before in this blog that I’m a visual artist–a self-taught one.
However, since the internet connection at our house in Haiti is so slow, it’s been nearly impossible to upload images of my work. While I’m home in the US, then, I want to take advantage of more bandwidth to share photos of some pieces I’ve completed in the past several months.
Today–a mixed media table I’ve made for our main living area in Haiti. It attempts to map in visual terms the spiritual and emotional journey Sara and I have taken in the past 2 years, moving first to Vietnam and then more recently resettling in Port-au-Prince.
The table is part collage, part decoupage, part painting. The photos below begin with one of the corner where the table sits and then offer a narrowing series of snapshots of the table top itself. You will see parts of Hanoi maps and other collected papers from the past year arranged, along with painting, to create an eight-pointed star.
Do you have any questions about this tiny table or about my work as a visual artist?
