Vessels
contact
The Vessels series is a
reflection on the ways in
which images acquire
additional meanings when
artifacts of an older culture
are adopted and interpreted
by a later one. I was inspired
by a friend's collection of
antique Chinese water jars,
that had been used by
scholars for calligraphy.
I photographed the jars,
made digital transparencies
of the photos, and then
layered them over collages
made from monoprinted,
found and prepared papers.
I added small objects - old
Chinese coins, mineral
toris, beads and small
gemstones. The result is a
combination of illusion
and tangible reality.
