Panis Angelicus
2010
installation size varies
Hydrostone

Hollowed-out Corinthian capitals are transformed into a column/cornucopia overflowing with breads, among which are hidden a variety of tiny angels in an exploration of the connection between the Demeter/Persephone myth and its visual trail over the centuries. Such “pagan” images continue to play a prominent role in the architecture of Roman Catholic churches, even in the United States. Everything is presented in the same stark whiteness, blending together the tangible and the ineffable, the material and the spiritual.
