These two installation pieces above are made of individually cast glass, each glass piece 17" x 12", and are each installed on an 8 ft wall, pairing the structural soundness of durable materials with more elusive and fragile elements, transforming the room into playful waves and a juxtaposition of overwhelming breadth.
My sculptural process consists of the overlapping of color, translucency and light to create a vocabulary of fragmented, repetitive forms derived from human, natural and industrial artifacts. For the last several years, I have been creating both 2D and 3D work that explores the themes of cultural inheritance, the dislocation of time, memory and mortality. These cycles are memorialized in songs, stories, cast glass, metal and collaged imagery to create themed series of multiple installations. As exaggerated elements, or parts of the whole, I attempt to document the experience that is forever encoded onto the brain. As installation fractions or individual pieces, this work is at once translucent and dense, ephemeral and visceral, which builds and expands world themes of danger, desire, engagement, loss and selective abandonment.
