Veiled Madonna is a one-of-a-kind collage. A fig leaf silhouette is printed on a vintage dictionary sheet revealing the “Madonna-esque” scribe. The oak leaf is printed on re-used tea bag paper. Both were printed by the gelatin (yes, “jello” slab) monotype process. Additional materials include mica, sealing wax and a Chinese coin.

This is a simple collage that speaks to my broader search for meaning through both nature and various religions. The fig leaf represents more traditional Christian ideas to me, the oak leaf speaks of my Celtic roots and the sealing wax stamp is a labyrinth pattern which is an ancient symbol that appears in all beliefs. What I love about this piece is this interpretation is all “after the fact.’ I made the piece very quickly without much thought other than the idea of veiled knowledge.

I hope you like it.
