Description

"...a mixed-media sculpture of rust-covered floats, ropes, and pulleys, is an iceberg of dread. A single rope extends up the wall, like a vine crawling upward. Toward the floor the rope runs into a knot of other lines which are connected to rusted floats that sit in a pile on the floor. It looks like something reclaimed from a naval graveyard and it conveys an overwhelming heaviness, and not merely as a pun: the rust indicative of something that has endured what life has tossed at the cost of how it looks, the puddle of flotation devices on the floor implying a tarnished buoyancy."
