Grandmother’s Song

27 Mar

I’m continuing to muse about particular works of mine that I resonate with. It’s interesting how quickly the pieces become autonomous and it isn’t easy to recall the details of creation. I always remember the why but not the how.
“Grandmother’s Song” is a tribute to women who have enhanced my life but have now ‘crossed over’. Some I have known for a small time and others for much longer and some I never met at all. Still it was something about them that affected and changed my life.
The original inspiration was artist Marsha Gomez and the 5 days I spent in her mask-making class in 1998. A Canadian doll-maker, Chaika Wiseman, my Aunt Pat and my Great Grandmother Ida Roos whom I never met were a few of the other women whom I pay honour to in “Grandmother’s Song”.
