Reflections I

When my friend, Katrina, sent out the invitation to participate her Octopus and Mermaids show, what spoke to me was her mention of lore and legends and, of course; Fortuna, the Fortune Telling Machine.

This was a kick in the pants and an opportunity to take the thoughts that had been rolling around in my head and create the works that I had been envisioning for some time. The work deals with my inward search and the external forces that I ponder, search out and have encountered.

I am always searching; searching for answers, truths, information. This piece is part of a triptych that I created representing the two sides of the external search. Notice the antique mirror, spotted and tarnished reflecting outward. As far as my depiction of the occult, I have always been in search of any way to reach the truth.
