As we see our mirrored image age, it is easy to discount the years we have lived. But then we should remember the Ginkgo tree. Ginkgo trees are at their most beautiful just before their leaves fall. That is something for us all to aspire to. This piece was originally created for a show about death. It is a self-portrait that celebrates the fragility of life as well as the gift of our existence. Layers of fabric, above and below the photo, allow me to slash into the photo, hide parts, and invent textures.
