The Renaissance series is a grouping of three collages depicting a family of skeletons, The Jones family. Each mixed media collage is six feet tall by four feet wide and all are made from sepia colored Schumacher wallpaper. The process includes hand ripping the toile wallpaper, reconfiguring the torn pieces into the various skeleton poses and then sealing and varnishing the artwork. Each piece is inspired by a vintage illustration from Christoph Jacob Trew, a German doctor and botanist from the 18th century. The first piece completed of the three skeletons was Renaissance Man: He. He faces backwards and alludes to the notion of men looking in the past. Renaissance Woman: She was created next, a female and facing forward. She is forward thinking. And thirdly, Renaissance: They. They is positioned in a side view, not looking forward or back but, straddling both worlds, a non-binary figure. Although skeletons can symbolize death, each artwork upon close inspection is full of life with illustrations of floral and fauna throughout. The pieces are representative of biology and evolution, honoring both ancestry and contemporary society.
