"Ama" (shown below), 963 cardstock triangles on museum black board, 60" x 40"
As an exploration into the fact of interdependence —of pure, unconditional love— this artform sees hundreds of individual pieces come together to form various shapes, colors, and parts that communicate through the simplicity of the shape that is the triangle. The process joins them at each angle, forming visual clusters (or families) that systematically make up the entire structure, an easily-digestible metaphorical narrative for micro and macro connections. It becomes simple to appreciate the inextricable link between each piece and their vital role in completing a cohesive image. This is an open invitation to reflect on the interdependent nature of all things.
Being alive and sentient today means becoming aware of the ongoings of the world, which can pull us in any direction. For this reason, I choose to work with subjects that are seeds —that are reminders of the positive aspects of life —that serve as lenses to the beauty beyond the fear. The aim is to remind others, if only for a few minutes at a time, that everything is love, and love is complete.
