My artmaking is sometimes akin to magical thinking. I pray through the doing of my work that the earth will ultimately heal, that its insects, animals, ecology and living beings of every type will experience peace, and all will become able to move forward to a future of interconnected health and sustainability.
I was part of an eleven-person exhibition about these concepts when the world shut down due to COVID. We had installed an amazing exhibition that, sadly, never opened. My Prayer for the Earth series came out of this.
