“The Becoming series depicts the stages of "becoming oneself". Encompassing childhood and mature years, it shows a journey from the struggles of standing up to the mastery of poise, both physical and intellectual, that comes with age. In the myth of Oedipus with the Sphinx,
the answer to a riddle connects the life cycle of human beings to the time of day, “A person as a baby in the morning of their life crawls on four feet (hands and knees). As an adult in the noon of their life, they walk on two feet. But when they are old, in the evening of their life, they walk with
a cane, on three feet. The Becoming series echoes the mythic stages of human development.”
