In the End We All Return to Earth
New Works by Shannon Amidon
In her new series “In the End We All Return to Earth,” Shannon Amidon delves further into encaustic painting, layering and collage, as she explores the process of healing; the persistent duality of life and death, and the mix of emotions elicited from experiencing the birth and death of loved ones in a brief span of time.
Amidon crafts intimate environments that hold both a sense of strength and vulnerability. Fragments of beloved books, mementos and letters of late family members are paired with organic imagery derived from memories of both joy and anguish. Amidon reveals reflections on the past and hopes for the future; honoring and celebrating those who have left and those still new to the world.
