I just returned from visiting Mecca and Medina. The structures, the geometry were etched in my mind. The sound, the silence, the cold marble on my feet and families. a sea of families on carpets.
This is my first large-scale work on paper made for my solo exhibition at Pearl Conard, Mansfield, Ohio. The work expanded across six watercolor paper panels. As you can see, it took over an entire wall in my studio. Sometimes the size of my studio dictates the size of the work. The work evolved over a period of two months before installation. You can see the finished piece here.
