Reflection



This piece is about being a woman and all the hats/roles that we juggle. Every once in a while we all stop and say to ourselves, "Who am I really?" "What defines me?". I don't know if there is ever a static answer. The words around the images reflect different phases of our lives such as prom, commitments, diapers, etc. The yellow vase on the lower left has an embryo in it as a woman contains within her the vessel of life.
This piece was really fun to create. It is made out of felted wool and the center image was basically made with beautifully dyed wool and felted as though it was a painting. I feel it has a folkloric feel to it and hopefully speaks to all of us.
