Tethered continues my use of collage techniques and the adding of three-dimensional objects to the flat paper support. Initially I did not have a preconceived notion of where the work would go – I simply began playing with paint and images. Many of the symbols have been re-purposed from other works though the boat and whaler figure were developed during the time I was working on this piece.

When the work was about finished, I began to add a few things to give some grist for the viewer’s interpretation. I added the white lines to both the whale and the whaler figures. I will leave it up to you to arrive at the connection between these two tethered figures. Create your own tale.
