Spirit of Life

Susan Caulfield's avatar Susan Caulfield

This piece centers on my connection to nature and the importance of being both grounded and reaching for the stars. The labyrinth (screen printed twice in this piece) is an ancient meditative and contemplative tool that allows one to find their way to the divine and back to the world in which they live. The labyrinth printed here is the one I visited in Chartres Cathedral in France, where it is made out of marble and is part of the floor of the cathedral (approximately 40' in diameter). Here, the labyrinth images are screen printed onto batik fabric and I use applique and quilting techniques to complete the piece.
