Reaching for Water. Fabrics, threads, foam, plastic and wood (most materials recycled), 138 x 197 inches (350 x 500 cm), 2023.
Reaching for Water is a textile art installation that intricately weaves together a verdant totem reminiscent of an object of reverence. Using recycled materials, this piece explores the depths of our connection with nature, with meticulously crafted textile roots that sprawl across the ground to get together under a trunk-like body that bursts with hand-sewn leaves, creating a vibrant canopy. This cycle of ascending leaves, gracefully returning to their roots, symbolizes the enduring connection between humanity and the natural world.
