My Vision of Peace
This is a mixed media collage piece on canvas with an assortment of text representing different languages and cultures, both current and ancient. While language allows us to communicate, it often becomes a stumbling block as well. Our human challenge is to unlock they key to dialogue across personal, cultural, political, and social lines as the foundation for peace.


Medium
As a collage artist, my primary materials are papers of all sorts, including those that are hand-made, found, printed and some that I have modified. I supplement them with acrylic paint, found objects and a variety of other media and materials to achieve the desired colors and textures. This piece also incorporates pieces of a puzzle of the Rosetta Stone, along with stamped symbols with specific cultural references.

I would love to see the original. This has wonderful depth to it. Language is a barrier where I think music can cross, alas one still needs to listen with an open heart.
