Description

This work is based on the Thien Mu Pagoda, near Hue, central Vietnam. It began as a work on paper with a focus on the pagoda, and evolved into a painting that focused more on the surrounding Japanese black pines, which created a dramatic backdrop against the sky. What is left is iconic fragments of the pagoda, the entrance way inviting the viewer into sacred space.

The work itself is a combination of collage ( printed photographs of the original drawing). painting and some mixed media work directly onto the canvas.
