More about Six Daughters
This piece is a continuation in my study of imagined post-anthropocene landscapes, the first chainstitched wall hanging I’ve done in this series. With these landscapes I am exploring what a future might look like for our land, long after humans disappear. I am interested in portraying solid rock as a living organism containing blood, tissue, and nerves, but still bearing evidence of centuries of white-washing and depletion from humans. I’m intrigued by envisioning the future by looking deep into the past, and in my hopeful days I see it as a sort of full circle. This piece specifically is drawing upon the history and imagery surrounding The Six Grandfathers, or as we’ve come to know it, Mount Rushmore. Perhaps the future will look more like the past, and the worn rock will more closely resemble its original form. Its spirit still rising into the atmosphere, will it be healed, reborn, renewed, though forever marked by us?
Due to the nature of chainstitched art, its texture and colors are extremely difficult to portray in a digital realm, and therefore no prints will be made of this piece.
10% of the artist profit from this piece will be donated to Native Hope, a non-profit seeking to address the injustice done to Native Americans.
