The sgraffito method used to create the images in this series is a surrender to the creative process. This image started as an oil pastel that was then completely covered in black tempera paint, with the hopes that it would reemerge with more character. Through scratching into the shadowy blackness, I reveal the oil pastel below. In this way textures, details, and a more complex image evolves. This process is symbolically meaningful to me and makes the work more potent. It represents the beauty that is found once we have accepted our own discovery process.
It is important to shine so that others may see. Often it feels like we should dim our light because others may think we are too bright. But our light is meant as a powerful beacon for those in the dark. Stars don’t need permission to shine, they just do. And with a chart of stars to guide us, we will all find our way.
This piece pairs with “Man In The Moon.” I made this set while in isolation with Covid. This was a reminder that sometimes, we feel like the moon reflecting the light and at other times, we are the star that shines. They can be hung together to look towards one another in a cosmic interplay. I also like the idea of sharing these between friends and family who are at a distance from one another, so that when we see them we are called to remember each other.
