Instead of looking down your nose at us, LOOK into our eyes and embrace the reflection of yourself.

Artist Statement

The following quotes influenced me in the creation of this work:

“The present urgency is to begin thinking within the context of the whole planet, the integral earth community with all its human and other-than-human components." -- Thomas Berry, The Great Work

“...planet Earth is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects," — Thomas Berry, Edited interview clip from video recording by writer and teacher Ram Dass (Richard Alpert) in 1991

“Eyes are the mirror of the soul." — Ancient Proverb

“Look each other in the eye." “Let’s see eye to eye." “Make eye contact." “Eye on the ball." -- Common Idioms

The work is meant to be dynamic, somewhat ambiguous, vibrant and thought-provoking.
