My long term series, 'A Sojourn in Seasons', consists of five chapters - one in black and white and four seasonal chapters in color. The large-scale, abstracted images of the treed landscape in this series are captured with an oversized pinhole or defocused lens. The images are usually segmented and presented as diptychs, triptychs or quads, printed on long panels of Japanese Kozo paper and infused with encaustic medium. The final presentation of translucent panels hang from acrylic bars with magnets, floating off the wall, casting shadows, and moving gently with air currents in a room. I began this series as my father was losing both his vision and his memory. As the images fade in and out of recognizable form, they echo our ephemeral grasp on life. The images are editions of twelve; click the thumbnails below to see the various chapters.
