Jennifer Thoreson, Multidisciplinary Artist

The family room included four photographs and a white dining table.  The table was rescued, re-finished, and painted. It is covered with a white linen cloth, resembling ceremonial garments, or burial cloth.  The cloth, hand-embroiderd by my Mother, exhibits a two-headed sheep, illustrating confusion, obstinance, and futility. The sheep carries a fetus in its shared uterus, denoting my personal struggle with infertility during the time I created this work. The table is covered in a mound of salt, pointing to the Sermon on the Mount, and Jesus’ reference to Christians as the Salt of the Earth.
