with encaustic, this
combination of painting and sculpture is about the struggle to live
with and survive trauma and traumatic events.
Whether the victim is a child, or many children, one person or a whole people, one family or thousands, trauma leaves it's mark. An indelible scar written across the minds and souls of those affected.
The rupture scars and twists the landscape, sometimes it allows bad things to enter, sometimes the crack allows pressure to release, but no matter what, nothing ruptured is ever the same again.
