Cracks in My Facade: Rupture Cracks in My Facade: Rupture
12" x 14" encaustic on panel  
currently one exhibition, "Wax Poetic" Nichols berg Gallery, Philadelphia, PA

Done 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.
