Jane Louise Taverner 021


"I always loved this beautiful skull, long before I realised it was Orozco’s work. My primary working methods involve appropriation and I wanted to try to produce a wry image, one that tried to mock the dark connotations of death and make the audience smile."

KALI-MEMENTO: The Kali hand stamp on the cover and attached, was created by William Evertson. This is how he describes his miniature plaster sculptures. "I think of my own hands. Once a child’s; untested and unblemished; now middle aged, calloused and scarred. Alternately strong and fragile; having physical memories of all the things they have touched. The memories that have shaped my hands. Their own patina somehow beyond my mental construct of how they got this way. I apply pigmented waxes as they come out aged - different - reflections of their symbol and the beginning of their journeys and the dust I and they come from and return to," the SEEKING KALI journey!

"The memento is a copy of the birth tag from my beautiful daughter Siobhan who sadly died aged 29. Her roars of laughter watching some old slapstick film in the next room would set the whole house off laughing. I expect she now has Heaven shaking with laughter too. This ABAD is for her as a thank you for all the joy she brought in life."
