"Place:We are tethered to it by way of family, culture, myth,
personal stories, biorhythms, land. These are some of the
tenuous threads that bind us to our home. These strands can be broken by war, cultural displacement, divorce, natural disaster. As an artist I try to reweave these sticky broken threads."-Meridel Rubenstein. With these words, Rubenstein
