"Dwellings & Habitats" Artist Statement
The snail inside its shell, the fox in its burrow, sparrows gathering twigs – I watch and see how we crave structure, a place to rest, to be, to dwell…
About two years ago, I began to think about jewels in praise of habitat. Reeds and poles, bricks and stones. I hunted for rough gems that could be bricks, clear aquamarines like the sky through a window, and all the while, it was going to be just that: the entrance to my house as a brooch, tiny fireplaces for earrings?
But, just like when I was a very small child and war erupted around us, suddenly things changed.
Home became essential refuge, each window and door, each wall and recess barnacled with feelings as time went on… My skies are cloudy, but my heart flies ! I am sheltered within these walls, but how I feel all of you, at once, awaiting the end of the storm!
