Description

Defending the Guardians 8x8 framed Print: The print on paper image measures 8 x 8 and comes with a 12x12 white mat board. Limited Edition: 100 In making this piece, I was exploring the cyclical existence that women live, tied so closely to the moon and cycles of the earth. The imagery of the hawthorn tree serves two purposes here. In folklore and medicine, the hawthorn is a powerful tree. It’s berries are known for their strong effect on the heart. The hawthorn’s trunk is covered in thorns, and as such is also seen as a tree of protection, as well as gateway to other worlds. Women have been subjugated, controlled and feared for as long as they’ve been in existence for their close and powerful ties to life and death. In their ability to bring life into the world, they sit at a crossroads or gateway, both wonderful and terrible, at the head of humanity. As a creature of the night, the owl is known for its ties to the moon, and is associated with the goddess Athena or Diana, the keepers of wisdom in Greek and Roman mythology. In this piece, the owl takes flight with the branch from the hawthorn tree in its talons. The owl and the hawthorn remind us to honor and respect the wisdom that all women have, in being the keepers or guardians of this spiritual and magical gateway between life and death. We, in turn, must remember that each woman carries her own piece of wisdom with her. We must trust her to use her wisdom to make choices for her life, no matter what outcomes they bring, no matter where they are.

I use imagery of nature and animals to create stories addressing societal and environmental issues. In my work, I explore how these issues intersect with the human narrative. I use bright, saturated colors made with layers of acrylic paint, pastel, collage, and ink. Using images of animals and medicinal plants, I weave a story of awakening and rebirth, reflective of my own experience as a woman and an artist in the modern world. My technique consists of many processes and layers, and I believe this helps the viewer to look closely at the work, gradually unveiling hidden nuances and details, both in technique and in the stories I create. Our world is rapidly changing, and it is only through real self- reflection, discovery and a sense of open-mindedness that we will be able to come together to save it.
