Preparing for my exhibit Talismans and Visionary Allegories at Lagerquist Gallery in Atlanta has been exciting, intriguing and challenging! Mostly because I am creating my first found object figurative sculpture “Hildegarde”.
She will represent the story teller in the exhibit and encompasses all of the symbolism represented in each of the allegories. As I searched for the elements of this sculpture I found that each time I found that special recycled piece of wood, metal , paper or ceramic I could feel the essence and the spirit of this art piece coming together. I will continue to add the photos of her creation as I complete this new idea of expression of my work in the study of the journey of iconography.
