INDICATIVE OF PASSAGE THROUGH INVISIBLE BORDERS AND TRANSITIONS
While speaking with a new friend, Emil Crystal pointed out something with this work that I had not yet interpreted. In desiring to represent a softness or gentleness in moments of transition, I also represent invisible change or invisible borders. Isn't the border between the United States and Mexico invisible? Isn't the border between my race and yours invisible? This work, a collection of felt birds passing through an invisible plane in space upon which the color of their bodies changes from one "side" to the next, expresses a softness and innocence, an inherent goodness that can be brought with us as we transition from one country to another, from one economic status to another, from one emotional state to another, from one community to another, etc., etc.
