The Catalyst

    The Catalyst

    So much of what we do for a living shows up in the way we process life events. This piece is part personal art journal and partly finished artwork.

    2022 held some surprises for me that brought up intense emotion: joy of the highest order to grief at my deepest levels.

    So I did the only thing I know how to do – I threw all of it onto a panel. All the light. All the dark. The bumpy texture, the smooth silky finish. It’s all right there, saying what I still can’t quite articulate.

    This piece is called “the Catalyst.” It’s a launch-off point to a completely different way of moving through life. It’s the recognition of a joyous gift that has begun a transformation within me that hasn’t fully come to fruition just yet.

    The Catalyst is a mixed media and mounted glass on a wood panel substrate. The overall dimensions are 28″ x 32″. It arrives unframed but ready to hang on french cleats. For those that wish to frame the piece, I recommend a canvas floater frame.
