Holding Peace is an ongoing series.
It began with the grief
I felt in my belly during a time of war.
Each piece includes a ball
I’ve painted to evoke our world.
Each one is held in a different way.
More than ever, in our time
of global suffering and peril,
I need the healing alchemy of art
to help me carry my share of awareness,
to transform the grief
and not succumb to despair.
The art of assemblage has become,
to me, a poetry of objects.
It has given my hands a way
of making tangible prayers.
