Place to remind me about art, small things, creativity and who i am. Where the child survives.
“During the fall of 2011 I realized that I was interested in turning my cyanotype photographic prints on cloth into skins for sculptures. Using the most basic additive process, I take cardboard, tape and old copies of the New York Times to create the forms. Once finished, these forms are covered with the cloth photographs which are hand sewn onto the piece. My current body of work is interested in exploring the idea of preservation of life through processes of taxidermy or illustration. My response has been to create a faux hand-sewn taxidermy which refuses to be a trophy piece. I want this work to provoke thoughts on our impulse to collect, to re-present and to preserve life past death.”
