“Portal” is about entering a world that is exotic, mystical, spiritual and maybe even a little bit dangerous. There is a passage from Thomas Wolfe’s book, Look Homeward Angel, that has been in the forefront of my mind as I’ve been working on this series. “…a stone, a leaf, an unfound door; of a stone, a leaf, a door. And of all the forgotten faces. Naked and alone we came into exile.” As I’ve gone deeper into the work, I’ve realized that the portal could also lead inward…to an internal place of essence, magic, grace and fortitude.
