Artist Statement

This installation began with a series ,"GLI ANEGLI DI ROMA" ("The Angels of Rome"), that was created while I was Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome. This initial series developed into a full solo gallery installation that references iconography from Rome, Ireland, and the arctic wilderness where I live. Entitled "Stones, Poems, Angels ", it is a site specific, full gallery installation that creates a sacred grove made of paper sculptures and mixed media suspended in white birch saplings, a tree whose archetypal essence dispels distortion. Iconography and iconology references Celtic standing stones, the energy of healing, and the presence of angels."
