Manufactured, inanimate, ordinary objects of our throw away world are constantly juxtaposed against the subtle, beckoning, and quiet beauty of Nature’s simplest gifts. Refreshing is the most recent addition to the Discarded Collection. “Discarded” is a collection of works that give renewal and rebirth to our cast offs. The sense of “newness” sparked by the hues of green diffuses the troubles of yesterday, bringing the viewer to experience a new place of comfort and rebirth. Texture emboldened with watercolor, purposed erosion, and thread draw one to the simpler moments of clarity and serenity that can only be experienced when one is in sync with Mother Nature herself.
