Growth

2013 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

"Growth" represents the emotional and spiritual transformation that people experience as they live life. The map and rocks beneath the layers of wax symbolize the depth of our being, which is influenced by our environment and experiences. Our geography, represented by the map, while very influential to our being, is chosen for us at birth and varies throughout our life. Slowly, as with rock formations, we change, shift, and are built up over time revealing our unique colors and shapes, which is how we appear on the surface. Our layers, however, are deep and powerful, building, shattering, and shifting as we interact with others and God. "Growth" is a layer of images with the base being a map of Michigan and a shore of varied and colorful rocks of ink, watercolor, and pastel, with an overlay of encaustic.
