Gallery > Fragments
Inspiration from this series is drawn from across cultures and time, influenced by the artistic touchstones of my own world as well as the people and places I have encountered in my travels. Lacemaking from around the globe, Mogul patterns and architecture, fragmented antiquities, the ethereal white of the Taj Mahal, temple embellishments from southeast Asia, the meditative and healing power of the mandala and the magic of handwork all have a voice in these pieces. The forces of nature and the passage of time bring fragmentation, frailty and vulnerability. These destructive forces are tempered, however, by resilience and strength, thereby bringing hope of survival.
