Svane Family Foundation

The Svane Family Foundation is a private family foundation in San Francisco, dedicated to supporting the vitality of Bay Area Artists and Arts Organizations. I received a grant from SFF last year at the beginning of the pandemic along with 100+ other Bay Area artists. It’s a comprehensive list and I am honored to be included in this robust roster.

The foundation committee asked grant artists to use the theme of the Ark as a way of navigating through difficult times (pandemic, social unrest, political chaos, etc.) and create a work of art to reflect that idea. My work is “Safety Cage,” a mixed media piece that conveys the following:

“’Safety Cage’ is a kind of pandemic self-portrait. I envisioned humanity traversing the dark land in dark times, each individual isolated in their own safety cage. This cage is personal ark, mobile but contained. And contained inside is human hope, in the form of an awkward and fragile golden flower, waiting to be released once the dark times have passed, to grow and thrive again. Through this isolation comes self discovery, contemplation, and the desire to be delivered and to emerge stronger and more golden.”

Ark Exhibitions artists include Aaron De La Cruz, Adam 5100, Adreinne Waheed, Adrian Burrell, Alicia McCarthy, Amy Palms, Amy X Neuburg, Andy Vogt, Angela Hennessy, Anna Valdez, Antonio Vidal, Asma Kazmi, Barry McGee, Brett Amory, Brian Singer, Butterfly Williams, Camila Magrane, Casey Gray, Cate White, Chad Hasegawa, Chanell Stone, Chelsea Wong, Chris Duncan, Chris Johanson, Christopher Martin, Cliff Hengst, Courtney Desiree Morris, Dana Dart-McLean, Dana King, Davina Semo, Dionne Lee, Dohee Lee, Donna Personna, Eli Thorne, Ellen Bruno, Emilio Villalba, Eric Johnston, Erica Deeman, Esther Elia, GATS, Gina M.
