We Are the Eighth Day

July 2008 – fabric, ribbon, beads, thread – 31″ diameter

This fabric image is made of scraps from the Passion of the Earth series, all of which survived with me through a serious car accident in June 2005.  Title inspired by the title of Elizabeth O’Connor’s book, The Eighth Day of Creation. In the Christian tradition, Creation was made in seven days.  We human beings now co-create in an unfolding dance with God and the Universe– and so we are the eighth day.

Image featured in Christian Century magazine, October 2009.
