A Rainbow of Chance (detail), 2010
A Rainbow of Chance (detail), 2010
The work from the series Serendipity, is an exploration in various media (often combining several in one piece) tend to be small in scale and address aspects of everyday life – inner dialogues, moments and details the artist sees, hears, causes or considers as she moves through her days. The many pieces in this new series titled Serendipity, are a mirror of the quotidian, but taken together, they also point to the larger themes running through the artist’s oeuvre: female empowerment; the meaning of time; the complex dynamics of intimate relationships; nature, especially birds; the anonymity of urban life, and even gentle considerations of aging.

A Rainbow of Chance, 2010
In contrast to the split-second chances offered by photography, collage’s mixing, recasting, and reappropriating allows an elastic, slower, perhaps more lasting kind of opportunity. Serendipity, per se. Fortuitous chance. Inherent in the belief in such chance, is, of course, an irrepressible hope that such serendipity has the possibility of occurring just when we least expect it.
