STRATA II: Manifesting through the Layers
This second edition of STRATA: Manifesting through the layers takes flight with so many twists and turns.
The visual and symbolic layers build upon meaning, texture, variety, and exploration with connective threads of the figure, elements of nature, home, comfort, identity, and psychic undercurrents within a maximalist tapestry reflecting our complex time.
The figure is repeated within the striations of the narrative and appears as a disrupted or an obscured presence.
The surfaces and the chaotic interpretations serve as a mirror to the many convolutions of existance today.
There are 64 original works of art...waiting for your gaze!
