I have always been fascinated by objects that are old and worn. I went through a phase of photographing aged things which often included peeling paint. The base of this piece is a photograph I took during that period. To it I have added the faces. These are wooden cherub sculptures that actually have wings. They are my sister’s and I photographed them at her farm. When I removed the wings they reminded me of spirits and seemed to mesh well with the old wooden background. They didn’t look happy so I had the feeling that they were trapped – trapped in time. A big thunder boomer is starting and I have to go watch. I LOVE thunderstorms!
