Ethernet Line (Portals Series)
Graphite and acrylic on photographed canvas
Portals is a meditation on the idea of other worlds. Portals are defined as magical or technological doorways that connect two locations, dimensions, or points in time. I employ spheres and circular forms as an aesthetic and surreal motif of portals. The sphere is an ancient archetypal symbol representing a variety of contradictory ideas. Spherical bubbles – like hopes and dreams- burst and are ethereal. Yet, spherical shapes like planets and balls are moving objects constantly evolving, rotating, reshaping, and eternal. Ethernet Line, a mixed media work overlaid over a found photographed canvas of Paris’ Arc de Triumph, is an imagined line made of indecipherable words. It is interconnected by a series of interconnected bubbles floating across the landscape.
