Vessel Manifest explores vessel forms and their pathways through time and experience. In using semiotic definitions to define the term vessel I investigate the ways in which it has become profound in my life. In seeking comfort and in searching for an explanation for the process of life and death, I look to the ways in which a vessel can manifest itself, physically, emotionally, mentally, and metaphysically. Memories of life spent on the water and theories and tenets of Tibetan Buddhist Philosophy are sewn together through images of physical vessels and abstract vessel forms. The large-scale intaglio prints incorporate multi-media methods to enhance their sense of physicality. Form and scale are exaggerated and reversed to amplify organic forms and human systems. Through this enhanced sense of corporality, Vessel Manifest becomes a recording of the collective identity that is our “soul”, as it continues its passage forward.
