Volcano Series

 

Inspired by Iceland’s volcanic eruptions, I created 11 mixed-media pieces incorporating chunks of beautiful pale blue-green “glass slag,”  since glass shards, spewed into the sky, are often a by-product of such an eruption. In my works,  the shards are embedded into a support of canvas stretched over a hollow substrate that allows light to pass through the back of the piece. Some of the images are completely abstract while others are somewhat narrative, addressing or describing the effects of eruptions on life on earth.

Despite the danger volcanoes pose, I am drawn to the magnificent visual beauty that emanates from such a cataclysmic event. The colors, the textures, and the historical and geological impact of these violent moments continue to fascinate me.
