17A - Bone Journey - 2000-2010
I have always been fascinated with bones. They are forms which grow. Bones are given form by the force of each individual life and support it, but their beauty is invisible until after death. They are the synthesis of life’s function and form, death’s architectural remains.
Vessels or boats are expressive of journey. Their forms are pod-like suggesting Nature’s verdant growth. They float. They shape and are shaped by water — life’s principal ingredient. Plants and animals are life’s most abundant forms and provide us with the nourishment to continue life. Combining bones and vessels becomes for me a Bone Journey — a symbol of our own journey through Nature and Time. Each of our journeys is one of life and death. These vessels are its echo.
17B Crossings 2010
Boats made with varied natural materials collected over the years, ending up on the shelves of my studio. Found materials, formed together become air-filled boats that can be seen through, hung or balanced on a finger. Though made of the same jig, each boat assumes a unique form dictated by the individual materials. These boats are like personalities-funereal boats of life's moods, shaped to glide easily into the next realm. They carry traces of life around me floating off into a new dimension.
