"While I sketched, I wrote and I read. I took notes. Then I sketched some more. While reading Jung, I came across the word ‘katabasis,’ a descent into the underworld. I thought about how we walk atop the earth while secret chambers are forming beneath our feet.
I feel satisfied that the pieces chosen for this exhibit reflect an underlying structure, but tell their own stories."
