Artist Statement - Barbara McGivern
"This year I have ventured into another realm of my work.. I am using words and symbols that reflect what is going on in todays society... I have not changed the use of the gold leaf because I feel it is just another colour and does not reflect wealth and greed but just another medium. I am also using crystals because people have a tendency of seeing the world in rose colour crystals, crystals also have such power to heal and communicate..."
