Bodhi (Ficus Religiosa) Skeleton Leaves,
Dye, Monofilament, Mineral Dust, Quartz Crystal
Ascension Leaves is created from hundreds of leaves from trees collected during the past year. Both fragile and strong, appearing delicate and lace-like, each leaf is unique and enduring. This sculpture expresses the connection of leaves to the human condition: we are all individuals, fragile in our health and physicality, but we are resilient and interconnected as a community.
