The nature of this body of work is reflective of spirituality as expressed through carnality. From the standpoint of humans as both temporal and spiritual beings, the work showcases one nature expressed through the other. With textiles as the media, the work aims to present the interweaving of these two natures, which are expressed through surface design and weaving techniques. The materials signify the brutality of our carnal existence (bones and blood), juxtaposed to the pure beauty of the spiritual realm (silk and gold). The tangibility of the work relates to our physical form, while the abstract concepts such as meditation and ethereality pertain to our spirituality. A connection to one’s spiritual nature can be made through viewing these physical art objects.
