Claudia Dowek sculpts canvases that
Refer to a shared identity memory.

Archetypes are created from elements of nature,
stones and earth become pigments, scales are embroidered,
straw is entwined, nets and laces are woven.

The canvases tell histories of which is left but a trace.

It is time to light a bonfire, tune the drums,
and dance to “saravá the hem of the day".

(*Saravá is an African expression that means salute.)
