Nan's "Unity" Mural to be shown at Baltimore Clay's Diversity Exhibition

Exhibition title: People of Color, People of Clay (an exhibition on diversity) Artist Statement: Unity; a tile mural. I create social narratives through sculpture, installation, and tile. My work with the photomontage on tile generated through original, composited photographs allows me to create complex images that offer the human aspect within a social context. The theme of diversity is new for me and I am addressing it by creating an image reflecting cultural and religious connection in a large tile mural titled, Unity. Photographs from my recent trip to Israel have been composed into a memorable photographic image that shows the unexpected diversity of the Israeli Jewish population. A beautiful panoramic view of the Kotel, the western wall of the historic temple in Jerusalem, is overlaid with photos capturing private moments where Ethiopian, Hassidic, Moroccan, and European Jews stand side by side during the act of prayer. Called the “wailing wall” water flows as a symbol for purification and cleansing. A young soldier wearing a prayer cap stands guard nearby holding an automatic weapon.
