“Materials often play as part of the semiotics of an image.  Found pigments have meaning and in this series “Hasenblut” I’ve used a blend of dehydrated gum Arabic and rabbit blood to discover what the image and materials can convey.  The blood has inherent properties and migrating colors to capture time and nature.  It starts out as a lovely scarlet and then ages to a dark maroon within a week or two.  Lucy was an icon that literally married Cuba and the US.  Joining the two countries metaphorically in blood.” – Pip Brant
