Vasalisa (Karen McDell)
I recycled old works to make these icons, they were textured variations of white, I prefer the aged look of black and bronze.
The subjects are all to be found at home, including the ship which is a velvet picture that belonged to Greg’s Grand father.
I was captivated by how easy it is to create resemblances of ancient symbols just by playing with arrangements, rather than the mana of having withstood the ravages of time it is the resonances within that appeal.
Karen lives in New Plymouth, New Zealand.
