A Trilobite Family Portrait

Steel, Western Red Cedar
$5980.00

Carbon + Iron + Wood x Heat x Pressure. Just like those found in the natural world, these trilobites are fossilized in time. But for these, it is the force of their making that defines their image. At 2300 degrees, they thrived and glowed yellow, electrified and malleable. After birth, they cooled, solidified–became stable and permanent records of their formation. Father was a simple man; mother was a darling; their children share a little of each.

It is fascinating to think of the billions of periodical cicada lying dormant underground for up to 17 years only to emerge, sing, molt, and mate for a mere couple of weeks. It brings to question what else is there, unseen, waiting for its time to surface. This Creep Worm burrowed into a pine tree long ago as a benign larva only taking what little the tree had to offer. Here, it is feeling its way into a new world, in a new skin and a new self, creeping towards life and death.
