After our recent election, feelings of fear, loss, and helplessness left me completely without inspiration to create new works, but the idea of “HINENI” has begun to bring me back to looking at this new reality with somewhat less despair. A Hebrew word meaning “I Am Here” resonated, and with the death of Leonard Cohen, I heard the word being sung often. I returned to my studio to create a series of pendants, brooches and door signs featuring “HINENI” and will be offering them for sale with all proceeds donated to Planned Parenthood. It’s one small thing I can do to be heard!
I AM HERE, I AM STANDING AND I WILL NOT MOVE !
