This body of work was created in 2012 and I received the “Best Artist” of that year by my peers at the Sawdust Art Festival. Many of my friends were about to give birth at this time in my life and I was moved by vastness and great creations we manifest everyday. The magic of giving birth to a new entity, friend, soul mate, and/or a human being that one will be sharing a huge part of their life with, was provoking enough for me to pay attention; and it was time to imagine a place and passageway of the divine.

These works are on two separate canvases made out of masonite with 3” boards as sides. The center of these 2 sides was hollowed out with my sander to create the passage of life and the place that all things come from. The inside was either gold leafed, or silver leafed for a smooth existence and a place to pollinate for the future of us.
