Artist Statement: This piece depicts the cicada as a seed of new life. Newly hatched, the cicada falls from tree branches to burrow underground where it feeds on roots for up to seventeen years. This is a story arc which is not unlike the trials and tribulations of human life. In successes and failures we too fall from heights and regroup nourished by our roots before ascending to the world to take flight.
