Spiritual Nexus depicts the harmony of faith in the unique and cohesive pursuit of devotion. Multicolored birds emitting from the rectangles represent paths chosen during journeys towards the light. The bird’s flight is symbolized as upward to signify the progression of erudition towards spiritual fulfillment. Two of the birds, one dark and one light, denote divergent belief systems representing a sort of spiritual yin-yang. The oval shapes represent the messages or signs that emit from the light, and thus when the bird shapes coincide with the oval shapes, a comprehensive understanding of the light is possible.
This tapestry titled "Forest Preserve" is 17 feet wide by 7.5 feet high. Commissioned for the conference room, S.B. Ashley Management Corporation, The Powers Building, Rochester, NY, 2004. Forest Preserve exemplifies the vision of a secluded environment. The enveloping dark surround is momentarily broken by the vibrant burst of abstract birds cutting their way through the landscape. This setting is analogous to the push and pull of everyday life. While there is time for quiet reflection, there is always opportunity for change and growth.
