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.
Remember death. Not as a threat, not as a horror, but as a call to actually live. I made this and the “All My Heart” piece while I had Covid in Feburary 2023. I’ve had multiple calls to come to understand death as part of life. Whether through my own multiple cancer diagnoses, or in grief and loss. Death has shown me that her power is not to be feared. That energy asks us to remember, accept and live in accordance to that knowing.
I chose the skull as the image of that call to remembrance. The skull houses the brain, our organ of memory in life. It gives structure and form to the face we wear in our lifetime. Yet, we also imagine it as the face of the Grim Reaper. I envisioned this with the “All My Heart” piece as a call to Life in the shadow of Death. Hanging them one above the other, sometimes I have my heart over my head, and sometimes I have the head over the heart.
