PORTRAIT OF GAIA: 2018

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Earlier this year I took a workshop on Joomchi, a Korean art form, which uses Hanji (mulberry paper), water, and a lot of elbow grease to create interesting and unique objects. PORTRAIT OF GAIA: 2018 is my first effort to apply what I learned in that workshop. In Greek mythology, Gaia is the personification of the earth and one of the primordial deities, the ancestral mother of all life. In this piece, the colors represent land and water, the essence of Gaia while the form reflects her state of affairs in 2018.  Matted and framed to 20” x 16”.
