Susan Lightcap -Holding the Hoop of Creation (Spring)

Statement

My work in mixed media celebrates the human marks people make on the world through talismanic doll figures that reflect my interest in the divine feminine. I find beauty in cast offs, the bits of paper, metal, wood, textiles, and other materials that reveal everyday life: what people use and throw away. Incorporating  found materials and objects, the pieces demonstrate a reiteration of consumption and waste that have contributed significantly to global warming in the last several decades. My work honors the path, chosen or inadvertent, that we travel, noting events and circumstances that mark the way, bringing a sense of order and comfort to stand against the chaos of the outer world. Techniques include assemblage, collage, machine and hand sewing, painting, carving, sculpting, embossing, and cold connections.
