At  Dream Farm Commons

Virgie, Solar Mother Mia Feuer 2020,  10ft   x 8 feet x 4 feet ,

plasterr, metal, wood, and found objects

The Solar Mothers is a growing body of fantastical figurative sculptures made by Mia Feuer. Formed from petrochemicals, found objects and trash. The Solar Mothers honor the 110 million year old petrified body of a Nodosaur discovered in the Alberta Tar Sand Strip Mines in 2011 and the Egyptian Goddess Tawaret. With the head of a hippo and tail of a serpent, Tawaret and her sisters, known as the Solar Mothers, are protectors of birthing mamas and newborn babies of all species as well as the deliverers of the sun over the horizon each morning. The bodies cast in this exhibition all belong to women the artist knows and loves, including that of Joan Keenan, the artist's best friend, who passed on October 6th 2020. She was a fierce midwife, and this exhibition is dedicated to her. It also marks a time of fiery winds of change, rage and the claiming of infinite possibility.
