A P o r t a l O n c e
By Rebecca Chaperon
22” x 28” Acrylic on canvas 2014
This work is from my 2014 series – Eccentric Gardens. In this series I used imagery of gardens to signify part of our internal psychic landscape.
Included in this series was a group of text paintings that used phrases that alluded to how we related to one another in an existential sense.
To me “You were a portal once” means that at one time you were a way in which someone could experience a different place or a different understanding than what they were accustomed to. An conduit to shifting the perspective of another person.
This piece was inspired by the poem by Hannah Stephenson - you can ready more of her work here: http://thestorialist.blogspot.ca/
