2021, Unique Cast Bronze, Patina and Locust Wood, 18” x 10”x 8.5”
In “Roar”, you see the girl with her hands up, making herself big and wearing growling mask of a bear to show she is large and fierce but when you pull her mask you see her sweet face and one then realize she is putting on this fierce face, to be heard, to be seen.
Mask a way for one to assume an identity, to become, some thing that maybe they do not have the strength or power to do without this shield of power.
Her shirt has the number seven which represents the seven directions of the Cherokee north, south, east, west, above, below and here, I see the “here” as the heart, the self that she is finding in herself.
