sculptures, installation view

each of these started out representing an element: earth, air, fire, water. now they are kind of mixed. the one with the stick skirt will have dirt on her silver plate...the candle one has ashes, the air one has the gurgle a phone (sound piece) and the water one has a water bowl....the one that feels least resolved to me is the water one....i wanted somehow to get the "light on water" effect, but sure the gallery doesn't have directional lighting...SO, we will go with what we have...suggestions welcome. they will go in the middle of the gallery with wall art around. the tops are my body cast in tape and plastic size. the other "human forms" i have in the show are the beeswax masks...would like to think about how there are casts of faces and torsos that are from my body..but not "figurative" work in the sense that a whole person is depicted...rather shells or casings....thoughts?

installation view of large pieces

this is my first attempt at something this large...I need them to read from far away in the installation and be strong compositionally, but also the have interest up close with the imagery, textures, and treatment of materials. this large space has allowed me to step back and look at the pieces from far away.

wall of hexes

this will be an installation of 40 small hex shaped pieces between 6 inches and 2.5 inches...varying thicknesses. it will be interesting to install--many possibilities.
