Metal, acrylic, ink, fabric & found objects
12x9 (Frame included)
Composition #I is part of the 10-collage Fragments series. Collages are pieced together and inspired by human courage and resilience across the globe. So many people facing adversity are determined to pick up the pieces and move forward after experiencing loss from natural disasters. It is inspiring!
In this piece, I empathize with the loss of a home. The complete devastation of losing a sense of place; roof over head; a sanctuary. Yet, somehow, strength and courage come through to rebuild and bring back the life once had. Realizations of attachment to stuff in comparison to the value of life become central in the healing process.
The ladder is a symbol that has come through my work for several years now. It is a symbol of hope. A symbol that we can climb out of anything if we make that first step.
