Waves of Sound

Upon my return from India, I realized my innate need to look at myself through new lenses. And so.. it’s clear to me to revisit ”foundation”. Not just as an artist, but on a soul level and what better way than with mosaic (with a whole lot of reflection/meditation, and music too). 

This particular piece is made of various stones from around the Earth, some of which are no longer available. This piece took the entire summer season of 2019. I started using a template of a guitar given to me around the age of seven by one of my Grandfathers. The sea of waves featured are indicative of the wealth of flavors and experiences along my path and the dimensional frequencies and events explored past, present, future. At one point while working on the fret board, I decided to completely redo it- realizing how it was mirroring my own tune-up, a work in progress. I could write indefinitely about the feelings that came up, the colors, the expressions that are woven into this work. It took me much longer than I ever thought, but hey.. It was worth all the time, energy, patience, and love.
