Human & Earth Justice
Alarm The onslaught of traumas is visited in my art. Asylum was illegally denied the immigrants desperately fleeing dire situations that include gang violence, starvation, and poverty. Young children were separated from their parents at the Mexican border then imprisoned in CBP holding facilities. We were evacuated from two wildfires here in Santa Rosa, CA and again, had to leave because of outages caused by nearby wildfires. Those experiences that cast me from my studio led me to spontaneous land art. Through all these traumas, we are charged with "Tikkun Olam", an ancient Hebrew phrase, translated as "repair the tear in the world". Much of the degradation of our natural environment, and certainly our assault on human rights can be noticed and repaired by us.
