Kravetz dreams him for us, in a self-transforming labyrinth, a changing web of interwoven angles and depths and lyrical curves. Moses is ensconced in a triptych that ascends and descends, from basket and web to the desert to the water-he returns to where we all begin, float-ing just above the leafless vegetation at the bottom of the placental riverbed. He is enveloped in the colors and swaddling cloths of an Andean babe in arms, transported wherever his mother goes.

But also about the hope for its transformation warmth and renewed life.
