This triptych by Pamela Holmes was made soon after the death of her mother and sister. It is a story of aging, growth, and the world beyond ours. The bottom work is one of communal innocence, as in childhood, or even before that. The middle work is the complexity of middle life, where things begin to separate out and de-homogenize, and cracks appears. The top work is when we reach the precipice of life, and somehow, things are both more simple and more complex.
Created with plaster, wood, concrete, pigments. This series was influenced by Mexico and Fra Angelico.
