Forest Fire, assemblage in a matchbox, 2020
In the aspen forests of New Mexico, fire is necessary for survival. Without forest fires the aspen trees won’t flourish. They’re a link between life and destruction, change and death. Of course, with the ramping up of climate change, fires in the Southwest are also terrifying and will probably become more frequent due to water scarcity and a hotter climate.
With the addition of photography using the readymade of a woman’s body, ideas of inside/outside, the destructive and nurturing behavior of humans, and the container of “femaleness” are all issues being raised.

These Kohen Hands will be available for purchase through the Springfield Art Association for the 2020 Liturgical and Sacred Art Festival in Springfield, IL, which runs from March 28th through April 25th.
This sculpture is hand carved from basswood and sits on a cherry base. It is an homage to the lost art of Eastern European Jewish woodcarving, a cultural heritage which was destroyed in the pograms and Shoah. Kohen hands are considered to be a priestly blessing in Judaism.
Please contact the gallery directly if you are interested in purchasing.
