Collection of the Artist. 1997.
The work acknowledges the delicacy of parent and child relationships and explores the myth of Persephone and Demeter.
The ephemeral central column, surrounded by a nest of pine needles is formed from connected threads of knotted manila and muka fibre.
The two-metre, vertical paper panels are made from muka fibre, to reference nurturing and protection.
During the paper-making process each panel had a strengthening thread inserted between the layers of paper pulp as 'veins' of muka and manila fibre, copper, steel or brass wire.
Materials: Hand made muka fibre paper with veins of Manilla and muka fibre, steel, copper and brass wire, and a nest of pine needles.
Dimensions: Installation size variable: paper panels each 1800 x 250mm.
