WORKOBJECTWORK

Moving freely between furniture, sculpture, and object, these works are unconventional forms that play in human gesture. A tongue-in-cheek interest in overtly serious Donald Judd's essay "It's Hard to Find a Good Lamp" (1993) is unavoidable. However, working on human scale via furniture and domestic objects creates consistent presences/entities that demand a humoring of emotional and physical connection. Ultimately using colors and concavities that ultimately prop and support.
