Phoenix Rising - Sculpture Series
How many faces? How many personas or roles do I shoulder? Who am I? The search for answers begins with self-awareness and takes a lifetime of introspection... No two journeys are ever quite the same…, nor are any two identities. We are survivors, we are the Phoenix Rising.

Elaine Weiner-Reed's "Masks and Mirrors: An Exploration of Identity" Solo Exhibition Series explores identity in all its facets, phases, trials, and tribulations. From one's first glimpse of self in the mirror to survival across time thanks to defense mechanisms with which we arm ourselves, this exhibition and series honors the journey, celebrates humanity, unravels relationships, and contemplates the Legacy of a life well-lived. Everyday heroes walk with and among us. Their lives inspire!
