Goddess Transition , 2021

Embroidery on Velum
12″ X 12″ X 12″

Goddess Transition is a visual representation of the mental change evoked by yoga. For the most part, our culture recognizes yoga as physical exercise.  But the physical benefits are a fortuitous byproduct. The goal of yoga isn’t about fighting your inner negativity, or getting in shape, or even avoiding back pain.  Instead it is about transforming the state of your mind allowing you to have an unobstructed view of the world and yourself. Not to judge but to observe. The true goal is to allow a cluttered mind to transition through the pathway of the breath and the heat of physical change to a place of clarity.  The continuous repetition of this transformative struggle is what leads to ubiquitous inner power.

Bias truth based on a million influencing factors; such as personal history, ideals, bad eyesight, color correctness, and many more that we aren’t even conscious of. Seven different honest impressions represented by seven different mediums: embroidery, pen, beading, charcoal, wire, spray paint, and fabric separated by cuts mimicking cracked glass in front of a plexiglass backing.

Is the expression of never being able to show your real feelings. Today one of the most important survival skills a person can have is being able to sell themselves. Being able to convince people of all your good qualities. Not only to be successful at a job but also socially and romantically. It is in your best interest that people see only what you want them to see. So where do you put the rest? Where do you put all your rageful, jealous, destructive, petty, gross, despairing, messy, and lonely thoughts and feelings? Emotions are energy. They cannot be created from nothing or completely destroyed, they can only transform. So in order to survive, where do you put all your inconvenient humanity?
