My work leads me to go beyond the material image and to attempt to convey the spirit of that image through the surface I create. This particular piece began with a fascination with prayer rugs. From there the concept of prayer and rugs evolved into that of the cross as the fabric of our faith, the blood stained prayer rug of our Savior, Christ.
The addition of the rocks and bells anchors it to this earth while echoing the mystery of worship. The wire acts as a bond to this earth and yet also weaves us into the fabric of the cross. It is the flesh of our spirit, sharp and cutting, but conductive of the love which comes from the Cross.
