“Reconstruction of the Chimera (Zachericle)” tells the story of the mythological phoenix while also incorporating personal narrative elements and concepts of the ouroboros & chimera. Created during my 2012 artist residency, it was inspired by a young man named Zach. Zach would stop by on a daily basis to grab a piece of candy from the bucket I left by the door for those passing by. One day, Zach decided to step in a little further than usual which led to a deeper conversation. I handed Zach a print of my work for stopping by, at which point tears welled up in his eyes. It was at that time that Zach told me he had been living on the street and was just accepted into a program where he would have a bed to sleep for the first time in a long time. My print, he said, was one of the only things in his possession that he could call his own, and the first thing for him to hang above his bed. By the time I finished this painting, Zach had stopped coming by. I don’t believe he ever saw it and hopefully that’s because he’s doing well. Sometimes we just need a chance to start over.

The ashes in this piece are from a painting I burned titled “The Transmutation of Miss-Tere” and the cut fragments are from a piece titled “Sacrifices and Second Chances (The Day Eye Made The Devil Blink).”

If you like my work, please share. I can’t do what I do without your support.

Polling the audience – Byzantine Jewellery

Polling the audience – Byzantine Jewellery

These incredible pieces (that sure look Byzantine and from antiquity to me) are from a lovely local designer around the corner from my house.

I’d like your opinion on if this would be something you would purchase. She is keen to try more designs based on historical references and the best thing is, IT’S AFFORDABLE! 

Let me know your thoughts, I’d really appreciate it! 🙂
