2013 Show: A Round Now In A Square Time > Facing phases

2009-2012 Series Facing Phases

(paper sculpture, photography, acrylics on stretched canvas)
This series of work recognizes the healing properties of embracing fleeting moments of grace experienced within the repetitive cycles of time which establish the human condition.
Each image is intended to capture, or freeze-frame, within the square of the picture plane, some point on this circular time line.
Some of these images express the duality which exists at key transition points between these phases of the human experience.

Life is a perpetual circle of pain, relief, celebration, and grief. Chronic pain must be faced with an exponentially increased determination to focus on the discovery of grace within that circle. Without grace, life is just motion looking for a place to rest.
