THE WHITE CROW: The white crow is a Russian term for misfit or eternal outsider. The Series explores how we see ourselves and at what point does our internal vision manifest itself in the external experience.
The following abstracts explore the life of relationship, the pushing away and pull of desire, connection and the complication that ensues.
Love Language: This series is meant to be viewed as an installation of seamless panels. It tracks the life of relationship over months/years. Constantly shifting well placed words at the start of a new love, we begin to shift our individuality like small puzzle pieces looking for connection. The best relationships, the ones that stand the tests of time can progress through periods of intense passion, days of darkness, periods of separation to cycle back to a renewed love. Others, simply stop to function and the love language is broken.
Life Lines: This installation is meant to be displayed as an acrylic cube of images; like life when tossed in the air like dice, love is in the luck of the throw. Life lines leading a heart to it’s fate and lonely is all that is left behind when the game is over.
UNDER CONSTRUCTION & COMING SOON >Lonely Spaces: Developed to observe what happens when relationship tires, lonely spaces leave relationships vulnerable, poor choices create distance, damage and solitude.
Woman of Valor is a series that is still in progress. The images revolve around the spiritual process of God’s work in our lives as Healer, Giver of Peace, The One Who Sees and the Hope we need to endure. Each piece contains the name of God, found in Hebrew scripture, which the exception of the title piece, Woman of Valor, which is taken from Proverbs 31:10-31. This series is born out of seeking a new way to live in the present, verses a disembodied existence that life often brings. Embedded in each image is symbolism that is personal for me. Aspects of God’s nature are in each scene as an infinite being, able to impart His Spirit, sight, wisdom and ultimately freedom from ourselves and our circumstances. Woman of Valor will continue to be a story of triumph in tribulation, because that is life.
