This piece is called Acquiesce.
This piece is made of wood and paperclay. It is painted with oils. The front shows a waterfall and ravine with a spirit at the top of the waterfall.
The back of the piece shows an image of myself turning away from the viewer to enter a darkened forest on the night of a full moon. The top of the piece shows the surface of a lake with mountians in the distance.
This is a detail of the front of the piece, where there is a door and a drawer.
On the interior of the door it reads, "she belongs to me".
In the interior of the piece there is a self-portrait. This is an image of myself walking through the woods on a snowy day and being fascinated by the movement of water in a stream.
The drawer pulls out to show a cave shape...an underground treasure.
The bottom of the piece shows a self-portrait. I am more than willing to sink into the earth, to dream, to imagine...to acquiesce to the Muse.
