    Statement of Work

    PALE MALE: A PILGRIMAGE, a spiritual journey, is a work about finding home when all is lost. It invites all online to experience its story and process at PALEMALE-A-PILGRIMAGE.COM

    Edition #3/10, 48"x36" a dura-trans LED lightbox that resembles a contemporary stained-glass window, is in the permanent collection of The 9/11 Memorial Museum. It was acquired by the 9/11 Memorial Museum for their permanent collection in March 2013.

    NOTE: pre 9/11 the artist worked at The World Trade Center complex for over a decade. She has been recognized and rewarded for her work in numerous exhibitions and awards and is a pioneer in the field of digital art since the early 1980s.

    Artist's personal statement about the work:
    Watching the towers fall and our lives changed, was the beginning of a spiritual journey and major creative shift in my work. Pondering an exhibition of Byzantine Icons at The Metropolitan Museum in 2004, I discovered that icons were understood to be “the strength, shelter, consolation and spiritual reinforcement of a nation which was in danger and later in bondage.” Contemplating this multi-layered process where technique and spirit combine, brought a new light and purpose to my work. I discovered a way to translate this methodology and practice into contemporary media. I called this new work a DIMONscape®

    The title, Pale Male, references the story of the famous hawk who made his home in a balcony window in a luxury New York City apartment complex, and also centers around the words "Love One Another". Smithsonian editor-at-large Paul Trachtman wrote that the work represented a new dimension in the artistic landscape - connecting the old with the new, the digital with the spiritual and the real with the virtual.

    It also connected me back to the world with new life and purpose; a form of resurrection.
