A piece from Chautauqua Institute.

 -"Procession", raw clay, branches, moss, the base is 7ft long x 3ft wide x 6in tall.

I created this piece for Chautauqua Institute's Fowler-Kellogg gallery this summer. It was a piece about the fragility of life, which I have shown through my material choice and the fact that I gave each creature a thin, spidery structure. But I also wanted to show that it is a shared journey; all of these creatures are heading in the same direction towards the same destination, whether that be an ending point or another cycle. There might be some hidden comfort in that thought, that even though this life ends at least we are all doing it together.
