The title comes from Walt Whitman’s poem. Enclosed in a shadow box are multiple faces of the artist from different moods and ages (future included) on different media that can be tilted back and forth to recompose the portrait. There s also an aroma from oil-infused eucalyptus leaves along wth oak leaves enclosed to connect to the landscape of the place where the artist lives.
