The Noah's Ark Series

Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson's avatar Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson

"The Noah's Ark Series" is a body of work that was created for a 2012 solo exhibition featuring 25 sets of animal two=by=twos. The Series features male and female animal portraits with a relationship between the two that has been established by both their pose and the interweaving of color and collage material. St. Hilaire Nelson was inspired in this series by her time spent working at summer camp for handicapped children, including her brother Chris. The song "Rise and Shine" was sung on the bus, in the building on rainy days, in the morning circle, and on the way from one activity to another. The kids loved the animals, the rhymes, and the repeating chorus. St. Hilaire Nelson dedicates "The Noah's Ark Series" to her brother Chris.
