More Birthdays

My  bra related sculpture features the femininity, sparkle  and beauty of my mother and contrasts that to the harsh reality of *** cancer.   The ribbon fabric along with the cake represent the birthday aspects of the piece.  Dying at a relatively young age robbed her and all of her family and friends of a future filled with life and many more birthdays.  The photos are of my mother who died too young as a result of this disease.  The jewelry used was from my mother’s jewelry box.  The hard, strong metal represents an  armor to protect but also symbolizes the harshness of the disease.   A cup half full symbolizes the loss of a ***, and the emptiness she felt.   I have never entered an art contest before and am very thankful to be able to express my feelings about *** cancer through a visual medium.   *** cancer touches us all.
