    Portland Cement, hand pressed Tennessee preserved spring clover, resin, risograph Roswell Amphora print

    Without These Winds I Would Be Invisible speaks toward monumentality, grief, and sentimentality. This series of three began as a memorial site, a place to rest, and an object to pay homage to the deaths my family did not get a funeral for, and began a poetic link to creating our own kinds of monuments that help us to move forward.

    Encased over sealed solid cast concrete and Portland Cement is a series of dehydrated Tennessee Spring Clover and a Risograph print of a small encased Rosewell Amphora. The solid bench is etched with repetitive hand-etched tally marks.

    This piece is ideally kept indoors but could see a life in an indoor/outdoor space should the buyer desire.

    Item is located in Detroit, MI. Local pickup available. Shipping not available. Delivery available within Metro Detroit at no additional charge.
