About this artwork

My life, our lives, are built upon the memories and experiences of others. The history that binds us together has to be broader, deeper than the moments that appear to be separating us. We are all connected, intrinsically bound to one another if we can stop and look another in the eye.Found, reclaimed and resurrected - an abstract wood relief ÒpaintingÓ in an assortment of soft and hard woods puzzled together within a salvaged antique window frame. I am a collector and gatherer of everything left behind, overlooked, tossed aside. From abandoned barns in Maine to kitchen remodels in Massachusetts to a razed rectory built in 1893 - each piece of wood carries a history and a past and now a new purpose. Each piece of wood has been individually cut and sanded by hand, some may receive a color treatment of stain or paint, some will be left in their natural state, before the entire piece is finished with Tung Oil. The artwork arrives ready to hang, signed on the back.
