Abyss, 2017

3-dimensional bead work. Framed. 9" x 9"


“Abyss” was inspired by the news following Hurricane Irma, where bodies of water were said to contain “brain-eating” amoeba.  The amoeba is viewed from the top, with its “mouth” (represented in green) devouring nerve cells (red).  In a way, this process is similar to a hurricane, which “swallows” everything in its way.  The “mouth” of the amoeba is surrounded by the swirling waters and winds of the hurricane.  The vortex force is present at both macro and micro scale.
