seven

This body of work is a narrative of layers, sequentially tied together. Seven open-ended spined stratum cylindrical coils surround this sanctuary. They are given freedom in the ether, the place between the earth and space. Each layer reacts to gravity, yet is restrained by one continual line of controlled tension. I am interested in developing visual metaphors for transfiguration and eschatology. Currently, I seek homage to faith, perseverance and providence.

Inspired by taxonomies of the natural world, I explore metaphoric relationships observed between humans and their connection to the environment. By using fibers, I reference a response to the impact wearables and the textile industry have on the entire earth. I attempt to relocate value for the earth's natural resources, specifically through the lifespan of natural fibers and reclaimed materials. My work is part of an ongoing investigation of disintegration and decay, to understand survival through life-cycles and a return back to an origin.
