The whole piece, is entitled, "The Urgency of Patience, 2022” and is made up of 30 individual pieces (Seeds) entitled, "Seeds of Patience, Rooted, 2022.” It includes its corresponding numbered position (of 1-30) on the board. They all contain stories from my hometown, voices of the Lipan Apache via the Texas Tribal Buffalo Project, voices from the Ukraine, and personal stories of my own family history. It is project collaborating government officials (i.e., Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, Agri-life, USDA) and environmental stewards / supporters of the arts. It was originally organized as a Smithsonian Institution collaboration, Museum on Main Street (MoMS) with my local art gallery. 

This particular Battle of the Soul collection series, TREE OF LIFE, depicts each of the 7 Sins and 7 Virtues being dismantled into Seeds, which are reworked as a whole picture that gets pulled into its opposite, to create balance. (i.e., Rage gets pulled into Patience, Envy into Admiration, Greed into Generosity, and so on). I enjoy continuing to push the boundaries of what I'm capable of when working on a record number of pieces at a time, as well as the impact each piece begins to have the more authentic they become

** Purchase is OPEN for PRE-SALE only, available to reserve by Entire Piece or by individual Seeds. This piece is scheduled for exhibited at The NAVE Museum in 2023.
