ARTIST STATEMENT (English / Espanol)

A symbol of enlightenment, transformation, and rebirth, the delicate lotus flower sprouts in muddy waters. Thus creating a meditation on the dynamic powers of the natural world—harmony arising from contrast, a principal balance in which I anchor my work. 

PINK LOTUS frames the landmark facade of The Peninsula Hotel in New York, interacting with and activating the two Greek Goddess carvings, Ceres and Diana. Because of this stark contrast between classical and modern, the work engages the viewer in a dialogue with history and contemporary notions of femininity.

Artists are mirrors to a complex universe; it is from this perspective that I communicate. PINK LOTUS is an ongoing investigation of the human condition, interpersonal relationships, and women’s role in society.  

Description: PINK LOTUS, a large-scale monumental light sculpture, is installed on the façade of The Peninsula Hotel landmark building. The large-scale light sculpture is part of “The Art of Pink,” an international Breast Cancer Awareness Month arts initiative,  sponsored by The Peninsula Hotels worldwide. PINK LOTUS has been exclusively curated by Circa 1881.
