VIEW IN MY ROOM
This came about without a plan or a back story. I think about it, and create new stories around it. The original became Three Angel Figures as I worked on it. Later I came to see the myth of Persephone and Hades in these figures. Is the center figure Demeter? Or some unknown mediator? The "original" that I photographed for this work is actually a heavy plaster cast of a 2019 bas relief sculpture, in paperclay on board. The cast coloring is very different than the "true" original, and it has a quite different feel than the lighter paperclay artwork. I am also working on casting this piece in tinted clear resin, for an alternate variation. I am a bit nervous about shipping the plaster cast, but contact me if you are interested. Resin casts will be easier to package for shipping, and a future acrylic cement cast will be suitable for out of doors.

I am most recently excited by sculpture, and I keep busy sculpting and casting! * * * Obsessed with making: after a 20 year career in computing, I turned to art full time, leaving the city (Seattle, WA) for a cohousing community in idyllic small town Port Townsend. I have a particular love of sculpture, assembly, & collage: I draw, paint, sculpt, assemble, blog (http://ptartist.com/), and print, using a wide variety of media. I don't go far without pencils, & use pastels, watercolor, ink, epoxy resin, wood, stone, and much more. My original work is often transformed & reused in both physical and digital collage; I use a computer, scanner and archival ink jet printer as artists tools to modify and create new work. I especially enjoy layering and combining in print making and collage. I appreciate the element of surprise, so rarely make detailed plans. I try to balance a need for control, which requires technical skill and practice, with a sense of play and enjoyment. Despite my play, I take my work seriously: it is a daily practice. I do not follow techniques and trends in the art world, however it is a delight to encounter a new technique that allows me to express my visual thoughts. Art is a form of expression and way to share what I see and feel. I want to communicate the sense of mystery and delight I feel myself. I hope to capture your eye and mind, and to take you to a different place for at least a moment. My Thread is a Rope The thread I hold is a rope. My thread is not a delicate silken floss, Bright with color. The thread that I hold onto is a rope: Strong, dull, dun colored, Dirty, encrusted with the juices of sixty-two years. Years of living, struggling, crying Laughing, making, and holding hands. Tarred by many more years of history, Family stories, memories not my own. Some strands of this rope are loose, Unraveled, untidy, adhering to people and things Left along the way. But the rope is strong: I can Pull, and lean, and even hang limp From this thread. --- Sandra I was born a British citizen in Alexandria, Egypt. I immigrated to the USA with my parents in 1964.
