Of Silence and Slow Time
In the series Of Silence and Slow Time, I consider the human form as a ruin, investigating the reality of long time on both humanity and art itself. The pieces are rich with the echoes of geologic time and archaeological wonder. I’m constantly engaged with these totems as they move across time, speaking simultaneously from the past, present and future.
I feel a fragmented, incomplete form can be a very successful gateway to real life. Each totem presents a complicated picture, dictating we use our imagination to fill in the missing pieces and access their mysteries.
The collection is cast in bronze, iron, and glass. Each material contributes its own unique identity, infusing the pieces with the memory of their own process’. Deeply spiritual, the totems have allowed me to glimpse slivers of our cultural memory.
