Woven Strangers 2021
Everyday forces are at work in our very own bodies that allow us to breathe and move. They can go easily unnoticed unless there is some sort of disruption. The pulse of our hearts, the inhalation and exhalation of our lungs all in a steady rhythm carry us through our days. We depend upon these natural mechanisms and like clockwork they support us.
This collection, Woven Wooden Strangers, honors these processes and mechanisms by celebrating the harsh edges of life through closely observing the exposure of our bodies to time and disease. These pieces seek balance and acknowledge what happens when life is suspended. As fragile and fleeting as life is, it is also strong and relentless, unhindered by the constant barrage of obstacles sent its way.
