SHADOW BOXES


Of his own work, Joseph Cornell once said, "Shadow boxes become poetic theaters ...wherein are metamorphosed the elements of a childhood promise."....His work is my muse.....the container acts as a metaphor for the whole world....a treasury of curiosities that is compelling to explore ... the fragments of once beautiful objects that come together in a magical way -- that is my goal......"the elements of a childhood promise."
