DivaISH by Felicia L. Reed
Medium: fiber art - wet felting
Dimensions: 30 x 40 inches
Artist Statement: This piece represents groups that we as people of color have aligned to in order to push forward for hundreds of years. It was made in honor of my Sister-N-Love who is an AKA and has demonstrated community, endurance, commitment, evolving, faith and positive mindset. It is made with silk and wool fibers hand agitated in an ancient felting technique. It is filled with affirmations, pieces of nature, essential oils, prayers and high vibrations. It is a reflection that our "community" may be a body of individuals who come together for the good of humanity outside of those who may co-exist in our living communities. It represents divine feminine connectivity and togetherness.
Artist Connection to the theme: This piece, DivaISH, is a true reflection of how we can lock arms and hearts as Martin Luther King, Jr often did to create a community of change. It represents female determination to excel and overcome. It serves as a reminder that we are better together. DivaISH brings symbolism of "it takes a village" and "we rise by helping others". This Healing Wrap is a testament to women coming together for great causes, sustainment and service to our communities. Most of all this Healing Wrap is an amazing modality of incredible love AND admiration from one black female to another...my Sister-N-Love, Jacqueline M. Jones.
