"Victory" 24 x 24
The collage for this piece was started just weeks after the Ukrainian conflict began. It was my way of processing the situation and remind myself of what was true and what I could hang on to during a time when nothing felt settled and safe. I struggled to bring the painting to life, spending bits and spurts doing layers and sections. It finally started to come together and it really seemed like the entire process of this painting fit the circumstance from which it was concieved. Battle and hardship. Struggle and suffering, but it didn't remain there. It came to completion and ended up being a declaration of triumph and victory that I hope for in our current situation and an everlasting victory that I know will redeem all that is broken and hurting.
This piece is created using paper collage and oil on cradled panel. The collage materials are wrapped around the edges for easy display. Varnished with a oil-based retouch varnish and wired to hang.
