Lavinia and the Nesting Box

Nesting Box

Nesting Box

I will have eight pieces being shown at Yuta Powell Salon on Madison Avenue for the next week. Here are pictures of a few of them.

Lavinia

Years ago I saw the Julie Taymor movie Titus, and went into a delicious state of sensory overload. In particular, one gory image has stuck with me; that of the character, Lavinia, perched pitifully in a swamp. Her hands have been chopped off, and in their place are two little bundles of sticks.

I’ve drawn similar images a number of times, but the sculpture is new.

Here is a row of creatures on a very beautiful table. There seems to be a theme of armlessness that I wasn’t entirely aware of before I laid them out at home, preparing to pack them up. Only one of the eight has arms and hands attached. I’m going to try not to over analyze this.

This is me, arms and all, before the opening.

I’ve been busy working on new pieces and projects and must post more soon.
