Reflections III

When my friend, Katrina, sent out the invitation to participate in this 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. I am always searching; searching for answers, truths, information.

This piece is part of the triptych that I created and it represents one side of the external search. Notice the antique mirror, spotted and tarnished reflecting outward. The images that I used in this piece were images that I took in Greece from the churches in my great grandparents' villages. I struggled with the message. Although the message is clear; the sense of community that I found as a child in the club I was raised in was reassuring and comforting on many levels.
