The Juggling Act is composed of 26 etched, composite images in an accordion style artist book assembled in layered narratives representing the passage of life. My work often references memory and place and images are gleaned from family history, world events, the landscape and found objects. These are often repeated, fragmented and used symbolically to evoke imagination and suggest an unfolding story. In The Juggling Act figures and forms are immersed or scattered afar, struggle to stay afloat or emerge, balance or juggle fragmented forms. Life is often precarious and the world can be both calm and turbulent.
