The Archaeology of the Mind series is symbolic of my life and my interests. The viewer has to look carefully between the layers and the obscuring of the quilting to discern what the images are. The imagery is diverse and layered as life experiences are laid one upon another. As the images are built up on the cloth, changes occur to how the shapes relate to one another. A single image that may represent a moment in time is mutated by the images that are layered upon it. As life goes on, the past affects the present which influences thoughts of the future. There is an evolution in thinking and a change in what becomes more important over time.
