2019, Tribute: The Sound of Those Cuffs, 48 x 20 x 13”, hand embroidery on acrylic, steel.

Tribute: The Sound of Those Cuffs is the first of a series of homage to some who have come into my life to unveil something inside of me that I had thought was dormant. Many hands make their way through a peony wreath, standing on an easel such as a funeral offering. A wreath translates to a “couronne” in french; a “crown” that you put on someone who’s place would normally be on a pedestal. But since it is a funeral wreath, I would rather it stay buried in the past until I open up once again.
