WELCOME TO A VISUAL JOURNEY
Curtain Call - began through a lengthy series of studies that were created using wood
engraving and lithography to re-create Greek & Roman sculpture and the human form from a time past. My intentions with the theatrics of this work was to create a redemptive beauty in the face of the aged through all the permutations of just a simple gaze of
wonderment, peering through a window of time past into a modern new world of drama.
This work became very much an archaeological investigation of the mechanisms of anatomy and form while piecing together features that had dissolved through the passing of time. Plus, the emergence of a personality from each revitalization, I very quickly discovered a life like ora that seem to energize the space they were created in and realized that like a contemporary dancer, each recreated stance and gesture became an expression conveying a meaning in a more drama-related sense, rather than being a simple performance of sculptural beauty.
