From the ‘Purify Annoint Sacrifice’ Series
This layered mixed media installation is part of the larger installation ‘Purify, Annoint, Sacrifice’ and is presented in the visceral anteroom of Barrister’s Gallery. Follower’s of the artist may have viewed the ‘Annoint’ installation currently on exhibit at the Contemporary Art Center (CAC) New Orleans.
From the artist: “Ritual itself is a part of the social fabric of any culture. It manifests itself in a myriad of ways and creates unity within the shared experience. It signifies a transformation whether a public or private event. Ritual often takes place in a sacred place or transforms an ordinary space into a sacred one. The experience generally reflects the history and perceptions of the participating group as a whole.”
