Wishful Intentions was a site specific installation made for the lobby of the Center for Contemporary Arts in Bedminster, NJ.
Installed July 2015 and was displayed until December 12, 2015.
Open my sock drawer and you will find twenty six pairs of pantyhose. I can recall the reason each were purchased. Wedding. Holiday. Special occasion. All were acquired in hopes to feel confident in my presence.
All the pantyhose in this installation were donated by the CCA community. Over fifteen pounds were contributed, for the greater part, by women. Each pair contains the hopes of being their best.
Collectively these woman stand enduringly as trees. Weathering the storms. Sheltering and nurturing life. Radiant in bloom, bearing of fruit, and shedding of time. It is they that support the hives of life.
I thank each and every one of them. They are strong, intelligent, and beautiful. Now if only as individuals we would believe it.
There are some people I have to thank for whom, without their great asstance, this installation would have never been accomplished.
