This piece has the same structural style characteristic of the others in this series called "InSite Series". Here, though, I resumed my work with a blend of oil and encaustic, since the qualities of these two media help me to better convey a sense of the passage of time. From my perspective, the idea of the passage of time is is intimately associated with the core concept of the "InSite Series" - memory. Memory plays an important role in our capacity to gain an accurate and deep intuitive understanding of a person or thing - the “Insight” process. As artist and former practicing clinical psychologist, the connections between art and psychologist fascinates me. So, here I played with the words "insight" - the psychological process, and the expression "on site" as a symbolic way to reflect on the ideas of a space "within" and "without" us, creating through art, a dimension in which both of them converge: the "InSite."
