Charles Wisseman, Mixed Media Artist


Family tree2021

amily tree, or will the circle be unbroken? Cross-sections of pine limbs, fractured and repaired with epoxy. (I was thinking of Japanese art of kintsugi , which uses gold to repair broken ceramics, rendering them more beautiful.) Wood scraps for arms and feet. Random antique photo portraits to assemble an everyman family. Families everywhere, including mine, fractured apart by religious and political differences. Seeing the fracture lines is the first step to healing , I have to hope and believe. Art is good therapy.
