The wolf I knew would lead me...

"lost twig" cast glass, natural twigs and branches, lighting, stopmotion animation and sound.

'The wolf I knew would lead me' (2012) is a mixed media installation evoking the transformational woods and forests of folklore and fairytale.

 

Jack Zipes says it best "Inevitably they find their way into the forest. It is there that they lose and find themselves. It is there that they gain a sense of what is to be done. The forest is always large, immense, great and mysterious. No one ever gains power over the forest, but the forest posses the power to change lives and alter destinies.”
