Retablo to the Future – mixed media on found object; 14 x 17 x 3.5 in.
This work is of a series of mixed media assemblages bemoaning the state of our planet. Depicted are my grandchildren together with extinct species, an ironic reference to our improbable future.
The butterflies are symbolizing hope and both rejuvenation and reincarnation.
