Pieces Of Prayer takes its title from an ongoing painting series of the same name which was inspired by poems and songs written in relation to my daughter’s study of our indigenous roots, the elements of the earth and the environment that sustains us. The first paintings in this series started by writing excerpts from these songs and poems directly on vellum. As the phrases were written over and over, the words became form, paint and charcoal were added and the images that emerged felt at once ancient and contemporary. Now moving deeper into this theme, in this pivotal time of environmental urgency, the paint is coming forth as marks of my reverence, my openness to the essence of what makes us human; our kinetic energy and physiological make-up that aligns us with all living things.
