Una Ofrenda en Memoria de los Ninos: Jakelin, Felipe, Carlos
(An Offering in Memory of the Children: Jakelin, Felipe, Carlos)
burnt matchsticks, arylic paint, phosphorescent paint, copper wire
Webster's Woods Sculpture Park, Port Angeles Fine Arts Center
Port Angeles, Washington, 2019
Alone or together, each stick is burned.
Then bathed in gold and phosphorescent paints.
Now a thousand tiny votives bound together.
Not a fence, but a bridge --- three bridges.
Burning on, holding vigil, staying awake, breathing.
