io Boerke | “Grief”

This media file is attached to: Ceramics / Sculpture / 3D Design

This piece is a sculpture and mask made with cardboard, glue, construction paper, textile fabric, antique doily, candle, leather, paint, rock and metal. Based on a project in Spring 2021, I made this piece in the weeks after my grandmother died and my father became diagnosed with terminal cancer. The fabric was my grandmothers, the doily was my great grandmothers. Bound in this piece is the love of my ancestors, the weight of my sadness, and the anger of lost time.
