Stained glass with painted details, iron frame,
14" X 28"
This panel was inspired by the idea of death as a passageway, as a transition from the state of being to one of non-being. PORTAL tries to express this fundamental duality. I have used an absolutely minimalist colour pallete to
express the austerity, the starkness of our confrontation with mortality. The red, of course, refers to our life blood.
OUT OF THE PAST - BATTERSEA SHIELD II
Stained glass, sandblasting, wood frame
23" X 33"
The Battersea Shield is a well know Celtic artifact from the Bronze Age. It was probably ritually buried in the Thames River, London,
perhaps in honour of the river gods. It was not in fact a grave good, an item buried with the dead, but I have resurrected it here as an
homage to those who have gone before. The panel also reminds one a little of a grave marker or standing stone.
