 In the studio, Gina Louthian-Stanley
surrounds herself with ephemera, with fabric, wood, bits of metal, and other found objects.
She begins her works by adding layers of cold wax and oil to create layers of color, pattern, and texture. Once she has created the desired base, she carefully arranges bits of old letters, stained papers, fabric from once loved clothing, then begins pulling the composi-
tion together. This is where the narrative or visual poetry begins, as she starts to make the connections between all elements to form a story. Ul- timately, she hopes others viewing these works will make their own connections, with a memory, a piece of identity, or a sense time or place in the natural world.
