Acrylic felt and silk ribbon wearable, 42 x 70", 2015.
A series of handmade felt icons adorn a brilliant orange expanse of felt, cut to drape around the shoulders and sweep the floor with rounded edges when worn. The mantle is decorated with playful graphic symbols that speak to the divinity and mystery coursing through the mundane.
Charged with the energy of my devotion, the cape is a wearable art object infused with vitality to be harnessed by contemporary shamans and priestesses. It can adorn the body in ritual, or adorn sacred space as a wall-hanging. Below, a codex of the icons details their symbolic significance.
