All Strings Attached

This piece was created as a final Art Therapy project for Family of Origin class. It expresses the idea that we are all connected to our family ancestry, our heritage, and our culture. No man (or woman) is an island - we always come from somewhere, we always cary our DNA with us... The name for this piece and its materials are inspired by the work of one of my favorite artists (and friend) Andrea Nelson. Andrea's assemblage "No Strings Attached" was the inspiration for naming my piece "All Strings Attached". To see Andrea's work, visit antelopearts.com.
