My Rescue - Artist Statement
Wonders of this beautiful world, its resources and its inhabitants abound with every breath, every gesture, every glance. As individuals and as a whole we have the ability to make positive changes and help others. Aesthetic expression, whether realized through music, the visual arts, dance, literature or the performing arts holds the power to transport, change, influence and enrich our lives, and those sharing our wondrous planet.
In creating and exhibiting My Rescue, I hope to spark a dialogue of awareness. In America 6-8 million animals are taken in by rescue organizations and shelters each year. Saving the precious life of an animal through volunteering, adoption or donation moves well beyond rescue of a fellow living creature, for through these generous acts of love, we too are rescued. - Martha Cares
Dedicated to those who generously devote themselves to the cause of helping our shelter animals find loving homes, and to those who adopt these beautiful beings.
