Here is another small segment of the fabric collage I'm currently working on. Possibly my favorite snippet so far, as it was inspired by Gustav Klimt.

I feel that the majority of Klimt's paintings are visual explorations of the truths that we all identify with. He successfully portrays, reveals and defines the paradox of beauty in ugliness. Those things which we must unavoidably experience, in life, in death, in global humanity. As perfectly stated in the book “Essential Klimt” by Laura Payne, his perspective continues to provoke serious contemplation, and his work creates a brooding, almost melancholy atmosphere while tackling a grand theme.
I have provided a copy of his painting “Tragedy. This one never fails to stimulate my senses. Please click on it to to view a larger more detailed image.

And,
so as to redeem myself in the eyes of the critics with regard to my own personifications and what I dare to call my art, it is my philosophy that…..
the degree of one's skill is NOT what should prompt us to create our own personal idea of art, but purely the degree of passion and desire for expression, thought, provocation, and motivation.

Through the creation of this humble and primitive little piece of my heART, I aspire to convey my philosophy.
