...and heaven and nature sing
"Starry Night Nativity challenged me to tell a story and engage the viewer in a small space. All the figures fit into an 8" box that opens up as a triptych and reveals a starry night encircling an intimate scene. My use of deep gradated blues and sparkly gold is a jewel-like reference to historical objects of art... I embellished the surfaces with gold dots â€”symbolizing light, or energy, hope inner strength...Gold connotes preciousness and enduring value, and I wanted this to be a special piece, that would be kept for a long time, or possibly handed down within families. "
I designed this piece to be versatile enough to display year-round, on a table or a wall; open or closed. The outside doors reflect nature and the cycles of lifeâ€”regeneration, renewal, rebirth. These themes influence everything I make." - Susan Lordi
