"Burning Sage", Lithograph
My apologies for the terrible photograph but the studio has been turned upside down and I grabbed this with my IPhone. Rushed to get this print done, way past deadline. I felt so guilty to be late but they were understanding. This is an edition I created for the Appalachian Elegy, Bell Hooks portfolio curated by Nicole Hand. The image and symbols represent my paternal grandmother. She was born in Appalachia (Southeast Tennessee) and lived on a farm in the hills. It was a very hard-working Irish immigrant family clan.
