Power Gripped within the

Light of Nature Christened

This has the shape of an alter piece. The adult feet are held in a birthing position.  A hand is pressing the feet into the luminous, ripening, reproductive flesh of the squash.  Set outside the glorious green containment is the bustier, a metaphor for constructed beauty. A focal point is centered within the core, where a boot embellished with feathers is obscured by natural elements.  The visual narrative is telling of creation, reproduction and the ritualistic celebration of nature through releasing the unnatural. By the location of symbols of artifice, below and outside, power is generated into the glorification of nature. The acknowledgement being in unity with nature allows full development of creative potential.
