Artist Notes
- Born to Dance -

The Indian, Chinese, Brazilian and Pennsylvania slate mosaic "Born To Dance" is a triptych, each panel measuring 4 feet by 8 feet (the whole measuring 8’x12’). Born To Dance was created from slate, garnets, and micaceous slates. The mosaic loosely portrays the teachings of Paracelsus, a sixteenth century alchemist, philosopher, mystic, astronomer and physician. The mosaic also reflects the commonality and potentiality of the components of our universe. In this case, the slates coming out of the ground closely relate to our above ground earthly environs and to what we see in the sky. The sylph, the salamander, the nymph and the gnome were imaginary beings inhabiting the four elements once believed to make up the physical world.
