A Divine Dance:
Woman, mother, wife, sister, daughter…
Long days before the evening hours and one is able to go inside one’s self for a quiet moment.
This body of work was inspired by the grace, dignity and charm of the Indian woman. One is struck with the beautiful bodies, the fabrics and the jewelry that are a part of each of these women. Whether working building highways or carrying heavy loads on their heads, they balance all the pieces of the dance.
Over time this body of work has evolved into a fuller understanding of the ‘Woman’s Dance of Life’ whose first steps are learned in childhood…
“I am two women: one wants to have all the joy, passion, and adventure that life can give me. The other wants to be a slave to routine, to family life, to the things that can be planned achieved. I’m a housewife and a prostitute, both of us living in the same body and doing battle with each other.
The meeting of these two women is a game with serious risks. A divine dance. When we meet, we are two divine energies, two universes colliding. If the meeting is not carried out with due reverence, one universe destroys the other.”
Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes
