Conversation in blue series, "Emmeline & Grace"

2013, Branch, paint, fishing wire, cloth pin, screw, screw cap, Sizes vary

The story of this installation is about a dialogue between a mother and a child in blue, blue being the most memorable, imaginable and emotional tone in my family history. The differences of cultural and social behavior in our society have grown as a gap in generations. The blue installation is in two parts; one side presents a mother as the old generation, and the other side presents a child as the new generation. I would like to invite the public to join me and examine where we stand and how we interact with one another in mundane human activity.

    Wonderful! Reminds me of the wind indicators they place on sails so that the sailor will know the angle to set them.

    I really enjoyed discussing your art today. It’s both thought provoking and very creative. It reminds me of life’s many paths.
