Artist statement: “The Eidolon Palm” represents the human form of sight and guidance. The hand can be seen as a physical representation of what we can and cannot hold in our grasp; which sometimes includes vision. (future, present, or past). Our eyes are needed for vision. Both are depicted as spirit-images. Often, we use our hands; coupled with our eyes (eyesight) as we navigate our way through our life experiences. We also use these same hands to nurture, develop community, and cultivate interpersonal relationships. “This vision is held in the spiritual hand of the beholder.”
