On the right, a second print of the image on polyester chiffon has been permanently wrinkled with a heat press and secured on top. My goal was to intensify the feeling of aging and fractured-ness that I hope the photograph imparts.
I won't be posting any photos of the entire image until the exhibit has been juried. Whatever the outcome, creating this piece and getting to know Thomas have been a singularly enlightening and poignant experience, albeit a sorrowful one. It has stretched me artistically and moved me as a fellow soul.
