018 - Nesting

"If I keep a home in my heart, a singing bird will come." - Lao Tzu

  • Artist Statement

    Within us all lies a nesting space, a cove where we foster both the good and the unhealthy within us. This tile was born out of a moment when I rediscovered that space within me, as if I had come upon an old box from the closet of myself. I dusted off the things that I no longer needed, and left the space open, waiting for the singing bird to come and nest.
