Here is number 3, in my new series of related artworks, titled “The Read Hat”. For this one I focused on memory and awareness; the image of a book symbolizes a collection of information, the ancient Greek text represents the beginnings of human philosophical thought… and yes, I also thought of magicians and the hat as a (voila!) vehicle for transformation.
Like the other two artworks “The Read Hat” was also inspired by colors in my landscape, Chihuahua dogs, dot patterns and comfortable pajamas.
