We all think of life as being cyclical. I created this piece in honor of a birth, of my granddaughter Eloise and to signify a death, that of my aunt Nanine Schwetman.
We spend our lives between these two points of existence. We are born and live with the knowledge that death is just around the corner. But, in the mean time we are here to create, live and love. The piece itself is constructed from fabric, canvas, hand-dyed silk, and bronze, with a new take on the bronze baby shoe. Baby Bunting is representative of a womb and progeny; and casts a nod to Claes Oldenburg, an artist who I consider an artistic “relative”.
