This is a close up of the Icarus multimedia project. The stamped and then transferred faces represent the chorus in a Greek play.

You can see Ariadne’s thread (it is the white string) encased with beeswax. The black cord represents a tie that would have bound Icarus to the earth… as if Icarus was a kite and not a human thrilled by the ascent. There is copper and silver leaf added under the beeswax.

Ever since the beginning of memory, I drew, painted, and crafted. As a child, above our family couch was a painting of lush woods and trail leading to a cottage house. I followed the trail with my mind’s eye and invented a family that lived in the cottage. Sometimes I would ”sit“ under a painted tree and imagine the world of the painting. My orientation shifted, I was no longer sitting on the couch, I was under the artfully rendered tree. This was the beginning of a love affair with art.

    Ah, I can envision it is just such a project. Yes, “The Chorus” always hanging around telling the truth. Great color choices and perfect faceless addition.

  • Ah, MMargot you are awesome! thank you, you “get it.”
