Advent: Week 2
This is the 2nd of 4 works within the Advent collaboration between poet, Alex Lane + me. We were commission by a community in Raleigh, NC, to create companion pieces for them to add to their journey through the season of Advent.
The Creative Process:
Alex weaves together words informed by the Advent story.
I then sit with her words— soak them in + create a piece inspired by her poem, the Advent narratives of the community + my own.
The final painting is at home with the Southeast Raleigh Table for the community to engage upclose; along with this video Alex has created utilizing photographs I took of my creative process for each piece.
It is a privilege to be able to share this piece of art with you.
