Icon of Influences
Project info

The human psyche is sculpted by various influences and experiences, each of us with our own unique combination. What solace could be sought if our maker was revealed, the sculptor of our own minds identified? Can behavioral awareness birth compassion for one's self and for others? In this spirit, I molded my particular set of influences - dysfunction, nature, mid-century idealism and the gay community - into one form, one embodied entity that honors my inner conflicts and conversations, an Icon of Influences. The personal portrait of psyche for myself is Mother Nature personified, dripping in nostalgic perfection, disturbed, absurd and fabulous.
These are self portraits of her in action...and inaction.
