Last Breath (installation)

Blown glass, silkscreened glass enamel print on sand-blasted and rolled clear and white glass, tin-glazed ceramic, cork, air from my mother’s deathbed 2014-2016 38 x 16 x 16 inches My mother was dying of stage four lung cancer. I made this work while my siblings and I took care of her in her last year. She encouraged my creative eccentricities and we made art together in the last few months of her life. This was the last work I did with her, her last breath, captured within this blown glass tear-drop. The enamel glass image is from an ongoing exploration of the faces of Mahākāla, a Hindu protector deity.
