Spirit Protectors
I stared this body of work on November 9th, 2016. I was devastated, full of anxiety & fear...afraid for my family, friends, neighbors and for this country. I knew that I needed to disengage from the news, the computer and from all of the nastiness that was happening around me. I wanted to spend my time & energy doing something positive, but had no idea what that was. So I did what I know, I made art. When finished, I decided to name each one after a friend that I love & admire. Each spirit protector is made with paper, canvas or metal that was eco dyed & adhered to blocks of scrap wood. Eco dyeing is a process where leaves are placed on top of paper, fabric or metal, and bundled by winding over rods or stacked in layers. They are then steamed or immersed in hot water to extract the pigments & produce a print made with plant dyes.
I sincerely hope that these bring you the joy, peace & hope that I experienced while making them.
