Hope Hilton “Smoke Signals (Palo Santo)” 2019
Hope Hilton – Smoke Signals
Experimenting with smoke drawings in the autumn of 2018 while processing the passing of her grandmother, Hilton shares with us the liminal space where her grief and love materialized. Rooted in the practice of improvisation and the honoring of impermanence, the works—created with the assistance of palo santo, sage, and bonfire smoke—all possess healing properties.
