Five women attended an art workshop in the summer of 2019. They layered, collaged, painted, made marks, worked hard and enjoyed the process. These mixed media paintings are the result, and the materiality and process are evident in the work. The resulting pieces have a sense of history and mystery: there are things hidden, then revealed, and then hidden. Many reference things ancient, with layers of images seen and unseen. In art, as in life, it is worthwhile to look beyond the surface.
