Retrograde Renegade



New Podcast. Slice o' life...a chunk of my history, willy nilly. Mid to late 80's/very early 90's version #1. I could go on and on, and I shall!

Gerontophobia

Finally finished this latest paper collage on glass piece:  Gerontophobia

15" x 6 " double-sided glass collage
Using paper cutouts circa 1860 to 1980.


This one has been in the works for about a year.  A dreamlike commentary on my fears of aging and of the terrible possibility of "giving up" as one grows older and infirm (mentally and physically).
Seeing elderly humans who have given up and whose lives revolve around their illness du jour makes me incredibly sad and frightened...
I'm trying to work on these feelings and reconcile them, but I see it every day (living in an older neighborhood with many octogenarians gives me a strange perspective...)
