Artist Statement

This body of work, Fractal Reflections is a meditation on the synergistic energies of confrontation and healing as the soul journeys toward self-awareness. Raining slivers of reflective mirrors and glass in varying degrees of clarity, magnification and angles invoke the stark transparency of self-reflection. Intricate layers of interwoven colors, buttons, frames and other found and created objects soften the mirrors’ impact imparting impressions of connection and healing.

When experiencing the work, collectors often reflect that they encounter facets of themselves or of their personal histories. This body of work seeks to deepen this participation on a physical and symbolic level through the application of color, the exploration of dimensionality and the selection of materials.
