The “Star of Dusk and Dawn” was the first piece created in the string mandala series. The piece was conceived during a time of darkness, while I was searching for light to guide me into the next chapter in my life.
The obstacles that arose during the creation process became metaphors; a tangible, visceral and visual view of my deepest unconscious self. I had no choice but to face and become aware of the fears I had of myself and this life.
The materials and aesthetics of the piece were very specifically chosen to reflect this coming of light during darkness.
The background surface, dark-stained, weathered and beaten in texture, represents the chaos and darkness that might swell within us. The star’s geometric pattern and tight bounds to its posts, symbolizes that structure and beauty have the power to lead us from the darkest of times. The muted and earthy tones of the string slowly emerges the star from the dark background, just as making changes to our very being slowly emerges from the depths of our inner dimensions.
The internal center of the star is armed with metaphysical power, much like a dream catcher captures bad dreams and dispels them in the morning light, the Star of Dusk and Dawn has the ability to transmutate words and intentions, manifestation negatives into positives, aligning us with new beginnings.
