Portholes | 2018
Portholes is a body of work commenting on the open portals to other spiritual dimensions. Only recently, did I incorporate art-making into her spiritual practice. Each sculpture acts as a portal between the earthly realm and the transcendent realm. The sculptures indicates that all our experiences affect us. Even the challenging ones. Like any wound, an experience leaves a scar, an imprint, that will affect us and our evolution in some shape or form.
The holes in the sculptures indicate the portals to the unseen/spiritual realms. It also illustrates that we are never alone, and that all we need to do is ask for assistance and it will be provided. Each sculpture also illustrates our path/journey and in each moment, we get to choose how we want to shape our reality with multiple possible timelines that could play out.
