I loved working with wood and enjoyed leaving behind evidence -at least partial evidence- of the process itself. Why cover the tracks of a beautiful quest?
This piece grew out of Ballad. I wanted to take a formally interesting gesture a step further. Through my research I found a reference story about two sisters that fell in love with the same man. Bad blood followed…see the Twa Sisters Irish ballad and song for what happened. I did not want to focus on the mere narrative of course. The challenge was to convey a sense of tension, while preserving closeness in the relationship of the sisters. Last but not least it was interesting to make a pair, and see how it changes the whole dynamic of the process.
