Stinger Gives Back
From this experience Stinger was born, a large lace scorpion fabricated using hundreds of donated and found doilies created by makers whose identities are long forgotten.
This 17x24 foot sculpture became the centerpiece for my solo show Loom Large at Boston Sculptors Gallery. She also travelled to the Cahoon Museum of American Art in the show Twisted, Twined, and Woven, and has been the subject of many articles and discussions.
It is time to return her to the biosphere. In honor of Tenderness Toward Existence Day, she will be in residence at my studio to offer herself back into the world. You are invited to snip and take away a piece of her as a memorial keepsake. She came to be through the contributions of many hands and now she reverses the act by giving herself back to the hands of many.
Join us for this celebration of humanity's connection with all living beings.
