"Finally Home" installation currently at A Space Gallery

Finally Home was created with lots of natural products, branches, leaves, etc from the ground ... the installation basically speaks about an area in my life where I had to work from the ground up ... leaves on the branches start to form again as other areas disappear ... a gold leaf booklet has only leaves covering the pages of what was once written on ... chapters disappear as new leaves fall upon it, thus creating new chapters ... the owl once again appears in this story, me - taking flight to the young that wait upon her ... photo frames of the shiniest silver display wealth to me and as some of the photos in the frames are put to rest others stand proudly with etchings of trees of new growth ... the compass is a sign of new direction and the bright pink cover on the booklet displays new life ...
