Delicate flake like paper is used in “Descent Home“. Organic shaped female skirt forms, grouped together like primordial organisms intended to be installed on natural soil can be viewed as descending into the earth or blooming from it.
Process again played its part in capturing female energy in this piece. The translucent paper was drenched in stiffening solution and tinted with olive oil and teas, reminiscent of baking or laundering. The association with women and how they have been revered and associated spiritually with the earth brings a timeless fundamental feminine presence to this work.
