Regeneration 01 (2007) paper, fiber, vegetation
One of the great things about taking a bit of time off from one's creative work is that materials seem so fresh and new when one returns to previous art projects. There is also an opportunity to reseed one's pieces with more fertile, incubated notions. I used to create primarily works on paper - drawings, collages, and mixed media pieces - but now I am totally enamored with the particles and ethereal bits that constitute the life cycle of paper. Regeneration requires risk. I have to remind myself to sometimes let go and simply throw things to the wind.
