First Aid Fetish (Purple Cross)
Metallic Watercolor on scored black Rag Paper
9" X 7" (framed)
What does a gilt cross mean when we lay the expanse of our human truths at our feet and stare deep into the quagmires reflecting back a cloudy blue sky. colonialism. conquering. reign, ego. lives. treasure. land. soil. The cross is a religious symbol, a first aid symbol, an addition symbol. How we polish and shine what is individually valuable at all costs, even when the summation is lives. But how do we hold tight, hold loose? This series is Sandburg's meditation on the first aid symbol. When she feels in trouble, art is her aide.
