This series combines dead fragments or discarded objects. Some of the found-objects are natural, such as rotten tree stumps, while other found-objects are man made, like an old ceramic birdbath.
Some of these objects have been repurposed by pioneering organisms including insects, fungi, and plant life.
My process begins with object-seeking. I select found objects which project both abandonment and potential. These hosts are molded in silicone rubber and casted in various types of plaster.
I wanted to incorporate the element of time into the series so Iíve made both day and night sculptures. The day sculptures are matte white with bronze insects and/or vegetal life while their nighttime counterparts are black with cool silver living parts.
This pioneering insect and plant life is represented in the form of sculpted or cast bronze or silver. While the matte plaster host objects absorb light, the shimmering polished bronze or silver of the living organisms reflects light and suggests movement and life.
