Sculpture: Fabric, Found Objects, Wood, Textile on Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric), Wood, Other.
For me, art is the teller of hidden stories, secret stories--it's visual medicine in the guise of symbols in a coded language. I'm inspired by the juxtaposition of things seen and unseen. The landscape surrounding Bantry Bay in Ireland is a spiritual one of my imagination, actually speckled with stone circles hidden inside fields where cows and sheep graze only. The bog cotton growing under animal feet, resilient and undervalued or perhaps just unnoticed, found its way into my pockets and then onto a green fabric background framed with found wood. The background is sparse, the bog cotton, or bog flowers,are stitched onto it and in very faint embroidering over the green is written in Cyrillic script 'b-o-g', meaning 'God' in Russian. This piece is dimensional--the flowers are not flat and the wood surrounding it is raised. It can be hung with a wire attached the back, and it ships in a custom-made crate.
