FRAGMENTS TO BE EXHIBITED AT FOOTHILLS ART CENTER, GOLDEN, COLORADO


"FRAGMENTS" tests the limits of the mind’s ability to see a complete face when only the slightest suggestion of one actually exists.  This unglazed porcelain "artifact" consists of a mouth, nose and eye which appear as shards of an ancient sculpture.  They hang on a brass stand in relation to each other as they would have appeared on the "original" sculpture. 
This work relies on abstract reductivism to stimulate the viewer’s individual interpretation, what scientists call the “beholder’s share,”  the concept that no work of art is complete without an observer’s unique experience, emotions and insight.


 

GRIDLOCK CURRENTLY EXHIBITED AT FOOTHILLS ART CENTER


The installation sculpture, GRIDLOCK, is a satirical socio-political commentary on the dysfunctional state of US geopolitics and domestic affairs.  As such it is particularly relevant
in this election year.  GRIDLOCK will be exhibited at the Foothills Art Center, Golden, Colorado from January 22 through March 26, 2016 as part of THE ENGAGED OBJECT, exploring
the use of fine craft processes to make social and political statements
