Wall-hanging mixed media assemblage: vintage frames, decorative papers, velvet, ribbon, artificial flowers, beads, fortune cookie papers


February 2023


26 in x 9 in x 3 in

The three octagonal frames represent the past, present, and future. The past is represented by an antique image of a mother holding a blank book, and a baby holding a flower and taking his first steps: beginnings and possibilities. The present has a tree in bloom encircled by the words "La Bonne Vie": the midst of a flourishing life. But the future is unknowable, half-hidden between a veil and a scroll of astronomical symbols. A celestial map suggests the future is written in the stars. Each frame is captioned with a fortune-cookie paper, and connected by a flow of antique decoration: velvet, ribbon, paper flowers and fabric leaves. The effect is like a Victorian fortune-teller's parlor.

"Perihelion" is when a planet comes closest to the sun. The title suggests that wherever we are today is the closest we can come to the future... a fortune-teller may try to read the stars, but their meaning remains just out of reach.
