BRED IN THE BONE

This series was largely inspired by research into the evolutionary connections between dinosaurs and present-day  birds.  This work aims to suggest a larger continuum of life and death by using material and methods that embody those evolutionary cycles as well: the limestone base of the underlying gesso contains calcified fossils of ancient creatures, and the bony structures and images have been revealed — excavated – by digging and sanding beneath the pigmented surface of the panel itself.
