back to the well

Most of my collages are well-mannered in that they clearly communicate the moment they arrive at completion. With others it is not so simple. The collages in this series mark multiple returns to a theme that never felt quite done with me.

“INSTINCT AND STUDY; LOVE AND HATE;

AUDACITY — REVERANCE. THESE MUST MATE,

AND FUSE WITH JACOB'S MYSTIC HEART,

TO WRESTLE WITH THE ANGEL — ART."
