Flight of Icarus
repurposed acrylic latex paint on canvas
18" x 18"  

"Repurposed acrylic latex is house paint that would otherwise go to waste, and that I rescue from reject shelves before it is sent to landfills.  The colors of Flight of Icarus are vivid, and represent an abstract rendering of flight -- the ascension and descension of Icarus."

                                                             56" x 42"

"Passage was created using organic stains, natural plant dyes, and earth pigments in a soy milk binder.  It has a subdued palette similar to other natural objects, and represents a passageway."
