The process intense nature of making this work (each seed bead in the sky is individually laid and adhered) speaks to the content of the piece – there are walls to scale/barriers to cross. It can be difficult-it can take time. This work is part of my Demarcation series. This work bids the viewer to consider structure and placement and one’s relationship to a wall or fence-physically/conceptually/politically. A barrier to one person may be a means of protection to another. The purpose of this work is to bring attention to the barriers that persons must climb (figuratively and actually) everyday in order to share in the American dream.
