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.
In 2011, a few weeks before my major surgery and chemo treatment for appendix cancer, I had something that I can only describe as a visitation. It was dreamlike, and happened as I laid in bed awake. A blue light orb came into the room and I felt a state of paralysis. It did not alarm me that I could not move. I could see the orb transform into three figures at the foot of the bed, and I saw a holographic circuit board appear above me. The figures moved things around on the board and I had a sense of energy shifting within me. There was a light that filled the space and a knowing sense of love, acceptance, and surrender.
When the surgery finally happened, the cancer was smaller than expected and the treatment was completely successful. It felt as if the visitation offered a healing hand in my process. This image was meant to capture that feeling and moment of transformation. It marks a turn in a process of discovery we all go through, a redirection of the energies in the circuit that moves us inward.
