Garden of Sacrifice
Mixed Media Collage
Dimensions 5.5' w x 7' h
Collected papers (newsprint cartoons, wallpaper, research papers) embedded on tyvek; stencil applications and gold leaf; image details painted over the full surface and gilding reflects multiple colors in varied lights.
The image here is a visual expression of the feminine tree as expressed in my poem:
Sitting as a bird on the holy Tree
that stands firm in harrowed mead,
floral fragrance of sacred words wing away
waiting for a listener,
flying to the Tabernacle where
many Songsters are seated
whose melodies through cycles formed atoms.
Her tree is infused to speak of that place as
those sacrifices feed roots in fertile fields.
