Your Beatrice Awaits

2013, Mixed medium: Graphite on matte mylar, carved wood, 22 1/8” x 12 ½” x 6″; Beatrice waited at the threshold between purgatory and paradise to guide Dante through the multiple layers of heaven. This dog waits to accompany our ascent up the inward stairs, just as Beatrice awaited Dante’s arrival. I see animals as our guides to other realms – realms of full-hearted trust, guilelessness and joy.
The stalactites hanging from the half arch above on the frame are reachings downward into this realm from the canopy of heaven. I made the piece proportionately tall and narrow so it would feel like a hallway or passage.
