Mother Sea (2016)

Summary

Mother Sea was completed for my studio course at Pratt Institute.  The story has three parts - a man, a woman, and their daughter.  The parts are loosely connected and create a circle.  The man catches a fish, the woman sews together a story, and the daughter, underneath a quilt, is transformed back into the golden fish.  The piece subtly explores a soft pain held between relationships of adults and children and the freedom a child searches for.  This is seen in the repeated injury to the adults and the child's freedom in the ocean.
