In the Iliad, Homer used leaves to express how individuals are engaged in a natural, perpetual, cyclical chain of life: “Like the generations of leaves, the lives of mortal men. Now the wind scatters the old leaves across the earth, now the living timber bursts with the new buds and spring comes round again. And so with men: as one generation comes to life, another dies away.”
Collages include sewn prints, gampi paper chiné-colle, hand-coloring and other found materials. Final sizes are approximately 19" x 22 for the vertical pieces and 19" x 48" for the horizontal triptych.
