Portal for Ruth Asawa


Portal for Ruth

35” x 16”
Fiber & clay

Ruth Asawa born 1926
was a Japanese American artist known for her hanging interlocking looped wire sculptures. Her weightless forms within forms cradle one another.
The smaller forms surrounded by larger forms are interdependent
and inseparable from one another.
The inside and outside surfaces are one.
Her creations are fragile yet strong silhouettes.

This portal is part of a series
The Pussy Party
inspired by Judy Chicago's Dinner Party.
Each an homage to a women artist who has effected me & fueled the fires my creative path. Taking cues from Chicago's beautiful masterpiece honoring hundreds of women that changed the course of history with their contributions, many of which have gone virtually unrecognized for their accomplishments.

Each piece I wrap by hand with much intention & praise to each women meant to be honored. Creating layers of color that evoke each artist's essence for me.

Duality of strength & vulnerability, power & receptivity
