This Mortal Coil Joy

2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

This piece is about timelessness, death, and what is left behind before it occurs. It is about permanence, decay, and joy. It is still, and in motion. Contradictions. In the sculpture I use twine and beeswax. I start by crocheting the twine.
