This series is inspired
by nature’s transformative states including seasonal changes, ascension of the
spirit following death and wisdom reaped through circles of time. They have been
evolving for many years, often triggered by personal or global events. Spring
Rhapsody, the most recent work, sprung forth during early days of the Corona
virus. Perhaps this piece is a search for beauty and rebirth as spring emerges
against the horrors of an overwhelming pandemic. The organizing material in
Germination/Rebirth are weeds gathered on late fall walks near water as the
seasons change. Ascension of my dear friend’s spirit
after her untimely
death, inspired Enid Arising that features her metal-smith components. Earlier
sculptural installations explore environmental and time issues.
Inspired by The Three Fantasies, composed by Albin Zak, against the backdrop of the Corona Virus pandemic, this work speaks of an insular hearth birthing beauty and positivism.
