"In The Shadow of Oneself" my sculpture of circled bricks stand to protect and cloister...while within their forms they literally secure and hold the remnants of my studio practice: a drawing of a home I built and lost, the scrapings of oil and cold wax, the tapes masking the edges of paper, colorful rymplecloth, the tools for mark-making, staples and paint chips and oil and wax stained protective rubber gloves. The interior courtyard of the brick construction represents and creates a calm and organized space amongst the studio debris and also, the feeling of a secret and safe place during the new and emerging forces in 2021 and beyond.
