Artist Statement

 

     When I was a little girl my parents and my brothers and sister and I would go to a restaurant called the Red Wing Diner in Massachusetts. I remember the red neon sign of a chicken whose wing would flap up and down, continuously. I thought it was so beautiful. One night a man in a checked suit and top hat came in. He came over to our table and actually pulled a rabbit out of his hat, a black and white rabbit. He let me hold it right there at the table. I looked out the window at the parking lot, which blinked red off and on from the flapping of the neon chicken, holding a black and white rabbit. That is the happiest memory of my childhood.  

     Many years later I read about an American soldier stationed in Kuwait during the first Gulf War. He had been there several months performing his military duties as required. Then one day in the desert he came upon a small child’s shoe with the foot still in it. He never recovered.
