Xuaca Sculpture and Spirit Drawings No.1 and No. 2
Lost Wax Cast Bronze. Framed Charcoal Drawings on Fine
Heavyweight Arches Paper
Nature infuses this work. Willow, palm fiber, coarse cloth the artist modelled and directly cast into the wax so it would combust in the kiln and create a unique texture. The transformation by bronze gave it structural strength. The charcoal drawings represent after-images of consciousness or spirit.
When distressed over a loved one's passing, the artist looked for guidance among indigenous death or remembering rituals. These and other rituals of her experience--that had made her feel deeply present, interconnected, and rooted in the land--compelled her to create this lasting work of art.
When a loved one passes it is easy to breeze thru the obligatory funeral. This artwork is a call to respect, honor and remember relations, ancestors. More in the About Page.
These drawings have been shown at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art and reviewed favorably in the quarterly magazine Artweek. Xuaca Sculpture has been exhibited at Fairmont Hotel and PacRim Annual Sculpture Exhibition in San Francisco & Bryant Street Gallery in Palo Alto.
