From the artist: With Sage and Cedar explores fire as a purifying cleansing force. It’s peaceful in its power and beautiful in its destruction, because the destruction is an important part of growth and change. The red roof hut here is my home with my husband and children. It’s the sprouting me that has grown out of the purification of the old me(s). Or, more broadly, it’s the embrace of self, of woman, of becoming a truer self.

From the artist: Lilith’s Final Warning focuses on fire as a violent, powerful, and somewhat uncontrollable force. It represents Lilith, an apocryphal precursor to Eve who would not be controlled by Adam. The red roof hut in the photo – the target of Lilith’s ire – is inspired by menstrual huts but more broadly, represents all the boxes we put femininity and womanhood into.
