Crow is complaining to other crows about his cawing ability and wishes he were beautiful. Lands on a power line and gets fried to feathers. Rises from the ashes to become a beautiful peacock. Human comes along and puts a collar on the peacock and walks away. Moral of the story: Sometimes it is better to be less than perfect and free than to be beautiful and captive.
It is true that there is no scientific proof of life after life and of the human soul. However, I believe there is a soul and it is energy recognized as light. I am drawn to the duality of light and dark--conceptualized as absence and presence. My work focuses on the connection humans have with the natural world. By means of my light constructions, I propose that when our bodies die our soul as light energy become one with the environment, leading to the continuation of life. Through allegory and visual parables that both children and adults can relate to, I ask my viewer to return to that sliver of time in childhood when she believed anything was possible, even life after life.
