This is “Icarus 3,” part of my new series of works on paper on exhibit at Dana L. Wiley GALLERY in the “Movement+Space” group exhibition. Graphite, gouache, candle smoke and cut drafting film on paper. 19″x24″ on acid free bristol, framed in maple wood.
This image feels intensely layered and steeped in memory for me. It is if I am painting my mind as a secret/overflowing garden. The myth of “Icarus” is about an intense yearning to reach light so much so that it leads to self-destruction. I often walk that line.
