Eroding by Kathy Thaden
24" x 18" x 2"
Under the cloud of COVID, working with items on hand in my studio I found myself reflecting on cultural erosion.
Whether the health and safety of our loved ones (and lack of health care for many), or the eroding environmental regulations and protection for this fragile earth. Above all, I wrestle with the eroding political landscape as well the long-overdue attention to racial disparity... In our throwaway culture, I am often inspired to reinvent glass scraps or found objects into sacred art, finding beauty in the brokenness. It's important to me that nothing be wasted.
Materials: Assorted stone, glass, smalti, shells, wood, found objects, cheesecloth
