“Portal” side two by Gayle H. Seely
Q: What is the definition of portal, you ask?
A: A portal is a gate or doorway. Portal can be used to describe other types of doorways, both literal and metaphorical. If you enjoy reading science fiction or fantasy, you may be familiar with the use of the word portal to mean “a doorway to another world.” The wardrobe in C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe functions as a portal to the land of Narnia.

“The portal piece for FRESH START began with two earrings made of abalone. A circle from my Mom balanced on a tall triangle that was mine. It immediately reminded me of a keyhole and drew me to the idea of peeking through a portal to see what comes next. The black edges bring to mind a path through the liminal space between the two bigger sides shining colorfully and shimmering with the changing light source.” Gayle H. Seely
“Gayle H. Seely’s ancient methods of mosaic and beading combined with fresh, modern energy and emotions create intricate colorful boxes, bound to delight,” wrote Eve Marx, reporter for The Astorian.
