Flight of the Hummingbird, 2020




I created this work during the protests in May and June. I wanted to showcase a world flipped upside down, but still recognizable; a world where everything was out in the open. I chose a desert. An ecosystem so vast, expansive that takes in the screams of the sun. Similar to the dystopian ecosystems that we are all bearing witness too. In spite of the heat of this moment and what’s felt in this work at first glance, I wanted to showcase pollination, fertilization that leads to new life. The potential for new life is always present where it seems as if life doesn’t exist. Brave worker Bees hover over a burning cactus simultaneously underscoring looting and rioting and still bringing forth work that needs to be completed. Thank you essential workers. The hummingbird, is a creature so small, but powerful, being able to consume up to two times its body weight in water per day. It carries this load well. This protagonist in my work is scaled up. It reminds us that what seems small, is still mighty. What moves fast and seems invisible is still and present. It can no longer we ignored.
