"Giants Among Us" opens this Saturday night at CHG Circa (8530A Washington Blvd. Culver City, CA). You'll see today's Giant depicted as fantasy, as emotion, even as edible. Our artists’ personal interpretations of this theme range everywhere from Eric Joyner’s fun, epic battle between donut and robot helicopters in “Colossus”, to realist painter Sarah Folkman’s serene “Fundament”.
This is my first "I am a mother" piece: More than a single female person, I have become a world. I have grown a human being inside my body. I have been the earth - tilled and reaped - the sole source of nutrients for a long gestation and then (giving a nod to the sun) 7 months outside my body. I am the platform for this creature, my little bird, clinging, looking to me as a compass, to be solid and permanent, to interpret for her through my touch and sounds who she is and what being alive means.
