The works in the Bundle Series are vessels, reliquaries of a sort that symbolically, and sometimes literally, hold and protect that which I find precious. Some of these things have found their way into the pieces – the bundles are filled with shredded ephemera. They are encased in a protective shell of encaustic, or made up of bits of old clothes, coffee bags, and fabrics.
