Catkins, cocoons balanced on a thin stalk waving in the wind. Egyptian fertility goddesses, bird women, pure symbols abstracted but holding the full story of femininity within themselves. Nature, my sincerest critic, bends the stalks, reshapes the forms. These figures, reworked, were created for Saunders’ Farm where they stood on their stalks in a field. Here they stand grouped in a barrel.
“Her use of natural-colored cement lends a contemporary and archaic feel simultaneously. These ladies could have come from an archeological dig, but they also display a palpable life force in the here and now.” Amy Lipton, Philipstown.info, October 19, 2012
