Description But one day, things changed. Their maid, Maria, arrived in the morning at her regular time to clean their condo. After waxing the black-and-white tile dining room floor, dusting the glass shelves and tabletops, rearranging cushions on the couch, love seat, and side chairs, vacuuming their brilliant white pile carpets, polishing their heavy, ornate silverware, and washing windows, she headed into the bedroom. She collected stray piles of dirty clothes to launder or dry-clean, rearranged scattered items on the dressers, and turned to the bed to straighten it.
But when she pulled down the covers, between the black satin sheets, she found the rotting corpse of an old, shriveled woman. Skin stretched tight across bones, cheeks sharp, teeth bared, pelvis and ribs angular beneath copper-colored, paper-thin hide, the bodys sparse silvery hair fell from the scalp, and the stink of decay filled the room.
Kay Stoner, Boston Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement I am a mixed media artist, writer, and poet who works with sacred geometries and colors to chronicle and archive the energetic experiences of myself and the collective consciousness.
I have been working with fractal images since the late 1990s, and I continue to be amazed by their intricacy and transitory nature. It is my honor and privilege to "midwife" them into being... the real magic happens in a space that no one can consciously approach... what remains for me -- for us all, really -- is to remain open and attendant and to do the best we can with the tools we've been given.
I have published numerous books of poetry and prose, and I have been working in mixed media for over 20 years. I am an avid student of mythology and symbolism, and I find the archetypes and abstractions of alchemy to be highly useful in creating my art, as well as the life I live. I have been employed in the legal field, high-tech, and financial services, and I bring to my art the intention of supporting and strengthening excellence in all activities, through the deliberate use of color, shape, geometries, and proportion.
