About The Artwork

This is a piece inspired by a poem by W.S. Merwin (my favorite poet): Sire Here comes the shadow not looking where it is going, And the whole night will fall; it is time Here comes the little wind which the hour Drags with it everywhere like an empty wagon through leaves. Here comes my ignorance shuffling after them Asking them what they are doing ... Standing still, I can hear my footsteps Come up behind me and go on... This is a collage made with a photograph printed on Japanese silk tissue and combined with encaustic (bees wax and tree resin) I have mounted it on wood panel. The man's image on the left is mounted on a piece of wood and is raised as is the element below with the foot prints. This gives it a three dimension that evokes a deep space and feeling of quiet.

I am an artist living in Viana do Castelo, Portugal. I have been making art for 30 plus years in relative obscurity with shows here and there. I mainly work with collectors who follow my work. I enjoy the personal relationship this allows. I travel throughout the year to photograph images that I will incorporate in my art. I use encaustic as a medium to work with collaged images of my photographs along with painting and drawing. My work is small and intimate. It evokes a private world that I share with the viewer. A place we can both discover as our memories reveal our paths and experiences no longer hidden or forgotten. I am inspired greatly by poetry of all kinds. Fernando Pessoa, Dogen, Eliot, Merwin, Cummings, Bishop, Yeats ....
