Boxing Day

Boxes hold our belongings when we move across the country, food we purchase at the grocery store, and gifts we give one another. The idea of a box holding personal secrets, wishes and dreams is often called a God Box. It is a vessel that takes your worries and hands them off to 'all that is', perhaps the great Oz himself.

My tools included pen, cotton swabs, coffee and a 6.5"x 8"x 3" box. The images are mystical animals pursuing magic, weaving their webs of life. They are intuition, the all knowing, the all seeing, all that is. They reside in silence, in less words and more observation, in solitude and introspection.

This box now resides in Brooklyn. A gift. There will be more, in time.
