Fissured, 2015, 6" x 9"

Living Portraits, sculpted by time and chance.

I love how the fullness of life unfolds like chapters on our faces; showing our strength, our frailty, our loves and losses, confronting how we respond to adversity and change, whether in rage, in steady protest, or quiet foundational and cyclical restoration. These handcrafted prints are slowly deconstructed and reshaped over time to mimic this process. These 'living' portraits continue to fissure as they dry, for weeks or months after creation -depending on their environment- …as in nature, and as in life.


Installation: National Gallery of Jamaica, 2015
