Unraveling forms define the collision of a dragonfly and walking stick insect. In luminous stained glass fragments and lunar unrest, a doctrine of inevitable degeneration and social decline is quantified. As in Chinese hanging scrolls and Japanese woodblock prints, extreme spatial divisions and multiple dramatic angles are utilized to invoke nature in a perpetual state of transformation.

Each custom made, museum quality Japanese wood frame has been further enhanced with an undercoating of purple clay, with an overlay of hand-gilded, silver leaf, which covers the entire front of the frame, including the inset double-beveled edge. Original, watercolor paintings “float” within each frame, in classic spatial proportions, and are mounted on archival mats, with organic wheat paste, and covered with UV protected glass.
