These totems are part of my (Re)Generation Series, expressing contemporary feminist sensibilities, while referencing archaic fertility figures such as Cycladic idols and the Venus of Willendorf. The idea of regeneration affirms our connection to the past, while discovering what we carry forward. I think of them as harbingers of an unknown future, singing out and quietly listening, beseeching each other and us. Their message may be hopeful, dystopian, or in some ways, both.
