MAKING SPECIAL - curated by Gina Telcocci
November 13 – December 12, 2013
My interests in the under-noticed yet overwhelming, the marginal yet monumental are informing my studio practice.
Discarded boxes, bed sheets and blankets, gathered and donated from thrift stores and yard sales are cut, re-sewn, wrapped, roped, stiffened, tied and built into objects that seem to be simultaneously shrouded yet exposed, armored and patched but disintegrating, the comfy rendered uncomfortable.
Existing somewhere on a spectrum between elegy and absurdity, the work examines a setting where the cautionary tale, private anxieties and natural history museum dioramas mash-up…and attempts to close the gap between tenderness and the grotesque.
